BREAKING NEWS: Petition filed with White House to Extend the H1B 60-Day Grace Period.



A petition was filed on the WhiteHouse.Gov website requesting the government to temporarily extend the 60-Day H1B Visa Grace period to 180 Days.

The Covid-19 situation is getting worse with massive lay-offs expected. The economic conditions may have a significant impact on H1B Workers.

Under regulations, H1B workers have a 60-Day grace period of unemployment time during each authorized validity period to stay in the USA legally. They must find new work within 60 days; otherwise, they have to leave the country. Most H1B workers are from India and can not travel home with children who are U.S Citizens as many nations announced an entry ban, including India.

H1B workers cater to the economy at large, mainly supporting the I.T Industry with high tax contributions.

We request the government to temporarily extend the 60-Day grace period to 180 days and protect the H1B workers under these difficult times. Thank you! 

Please follow the link to sign the petition. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/temporarily-extend-60-day-h1b-visa-grace-period-180-days?fbclid=IwAR3eQiyASU5mKN4uSFbWPLwLkhBW4oUbcFYUA8Gcki4FCAtQ9dHjuj42n44
