Changes expected in the Visa regimen in the US
The White House is all set to play host to an important meeting that is expected to discuss the much awaited immigration reforms, which have been delayed due to many unforeseen setbacks. The basis of the meeting is the various reforms that President Barak Obama wants to introduce. It is expected that the introduction of these reforms will take some time but there will be not much difficulty in putting them through.
Experts are of the opinion that the President will not have to lose his sleep on these reforms. But the reforms are expected to bring about certain changes in the US immigration policy and this may block the path for many UK candidates to come and work in the US.
The bulletin released in the month of August by the US Department of State notifies that there will be some changes in the EB-2 and EB-3 categories for the employment-based permanent visas. In the present moment countries of the EU fall under the EB-1 category and many more countries are expected to be added in the EB-3 category. But the exact time frame for all these changes has not been fixed as yet.
The present global recession has also had an effect on the number of applicants wanting to travel to the US for jobs. A downfall in the number of applications has been observed all through the year.
