High-skilled visa applications hit record high - again

by Kijner & Sons International Realty

KSI Realty New York Inc. is pleased to share with you a recent article by Sarah Ashley O'Brien entitled "High-skilled visa applications hit record high - again" and published on CNN Money on April 12th, 2016.

Highly skilled foreigners who study at some of our Nation's top universities often find themselves creating their first startup right where they received their Master or PhD degree. From Harvard to Stanford, from the University of Chicago to Columbia University or the University of Florida, more and more highly skilled foreign brains are seeking a legal path to stay in the U.S.A.

Only 80,000 H1-B Visas are awarded under a lottery each year and most of them are already called for by April 9th of each year. 20,000 of these Visas are reserved for Master graduates or above.

America's top businesses and most innovative startups have over half of their founders as foreign nationals. The need to attract and secure the most skilled workers is one of our Nation's greatest interests. Not only will it benefit domestic workers by creating hundreds of thousands of jobs each year but avoid the loss of talents to foreign countries such as Canada, France, Germany, the UK, India and China that are trying to attract US educated top talents to fuel their thriving economies.

KSI Realty New York Inc. is pleased to inform you that many highly skilled investors can seek a legal path to permanent residency through our EB-5 programs or a legal non-immigrant work authorization through E-2 Treaty programs that are other excellent options vs. the hard to get H1-B Visa (sponsored by the prospective employer).
