[h=1]What could be the long term impact of this executive order of Trump Government..?[/h][h=1]What Really Is The ‘Buy American, Hire American’ Order And Will It Impact Indian Professionals?[/h]
A lot has been said about United States President Donald Trump’s new executive order titled ‘Buy American and Hire American’ (BAHA) order. There is a lot of apprehension about its impact on H-1B visas and employment of foreign nationals in the United States (US). So what exactly is happening?

Here is a short guide to the entire issue.

What is an H-1B visa and how is it issued?

The H-1B visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows an employer in the US to employ foreigners in speciality professions for a period of up to three years. In case the employee is no longer employed with the employer who sponsored the visa, he/she must either change the visa type or find another employer or leave the country.

Speciality professions are defined as those which require theoretical and practical application of a body of highly specialised knowledge in a field. About 85,000 H1-B visas are released in a year, often running out in no time. As per the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), 69.7 per cent of H1-B visas are issued to Indian nationals.

Of the total number of visas issued, 65,000 are issued to skilled workers with a college degree and the remaining 20,000 to those with higher training. The selection of applicants is done randomly using a computerised lottery system.

Now, what does Trump’s BAHA order state?
