滴答网讯  美国公民及移民服务局发布一份备忘录,加大了企业通过H-1B签证将外籍技术工人引入美国的难度。




Computer programmers may no longer be eligible for H-1B visas
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services quietly over the weekend released 
new guidance that computer programmers are no longer presumed to be eligible
for H-1B visas.

What it means: This aligns with the administration's focus on reserving the 
temporary visas for very high-skilled (and higher-paid) professionals while 
encouraging low- and mid-level jobs to go to American workers instead. The 
new guidance affects applications for the lottery for 2018 fiscal year that 
opened Monday.

What comes next: Companies applying for H-1B visas for computer programming 
positions will have to submit additional evidence showing that the jobs are 
complex or specialized and require professional degrees. Entry-level wages 
attached to these visa applications will also get more scrutiny. The change 
appears to target outsourcing companies, who typically employ lower-paid, 
lower-level computer workers. 



“这是在加强合格审查的正确方向上迈出的一步,”在H-1B签证项目方面颇有研究的哈佛大学副教授Ron Hira表示。“你得拿出更多理由来说明为什么你需要这个人。”
