US Visas and Immigration: A Primer

People from all over the world aspire to come to the U.S. to build a better life for themselves and their families. In the video below, D.V. Venkatagiri of GLeaps in Chennai meets with Mr. K. Senthil Kumar, Managing Attorney of Murthy Immigration Services Pvt. Ltd. to discuss some basics for aspiring Indian expats who want to come to the United States of America. 

Questions tackled in the video below include: 

  • How will immigration policy change depending on the upcoming US election (this conversation took place before the 2016 US election)?
  • What additional fees will be applied to H1B, L1A, and L1B visas? How will this US visa hike impact offshoring and outsourcing travel needs from India to the US?
  • How does the US visa policy effect Indian IT outsourcing?
  • Will the US ever allow visa on arrival or visa waiver for Indians coming to the US?
  • What is the current state of the EB-5 visa program?
  • What are two things to make the visa processing easier?
  • What are some tips for first time visa applicants?
