New H-1B visa norm to impact Indian IT firms

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has issued a ruling by which an H-1B visa beneficiary can’t change geographical location outside of the labour condition application (LCA), or on applications filed with his/her original petition. This move is expected to restrict the free movement of H-1B visa holders between various worksites in the country. The administrative appeals office (AAO) of USCIS, in April this year, said that the relocation of an H-1B worker to a worksite not previously listed on the LCA or H-1B petition would require a newly-certified LCA as well as an amended H-1B petition.
