H-1B Visa : Big relief to Indian citizens


Washington :  In a major relief to Indian professionals, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced that they can now renew their work visas in the US without traveling abroad. Addressing the Indian diaspora at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington DC, PM Modi said that new US consulates would be opened in Bengaluru and Ahmedabad.

It has now been decided that H1B visa renewal can be done in the US only. The move is part of the people-to-people initiative and comes after a bilateral meeting between Prime Minister Modi and US President Joe Biden. USA authorities announced that they will introduce in-country renewal H-1B visa as part of a people-to-people initiative to streamline the process of H-1B visa renewal for many Indians working in the US.

Let us tell you that India is going to open a new consulate in Seattle this year. Apart from this, Indian Consulates will be opened in 2 more cities of America. PM Modi said that together we are not only making policies and agreements, we are also shaping lives, dreams and destinies.

Overwhelmed by the presence of the Indian community, PM Modi said that in a way, you have drawn a complete map of India in this hall. I can see people from all corners of India here. It seems that a mini India has been created. A new and glorious journey of mutual relations between India and America has started with the historic visit of PM Modi to America. I want to thank all of you for showing such a beautiful image of Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat in America.

Prime Minister Modi said that there was a lot of discussion between Biden and me in the last 3 days. I can say that he is an experienced politician. He has always tried to take the Indo-US partnership to another level. Big companies like Micron, Google and Applied Materials have also announced investment in India during PM’s visit. Micron’s US$ 2.5 billion investment in the semiconductor sector is going to link India to the world semiconductor chain.

Apart from this, America will return more than 100 artifacts to India. Not only this, NASA will provide advanced training to Indian astronauts. This new journey of Make in India-Make for the World is all about Indo-US cooperation. Both countries are taking steps towards a better stronger country.
