Among the Highest Earning Sections in the US are the H1-B Visa Holders: Study

    Updated on: 26 Oct 2023 5 min read


    The Indian community in the US has the distinction of being one the most affluent ethnicities in the country. None from other ethnicities come even close to the Indian diaspora and these Indians are among the most paid workers because of their skills, hard work, and work ethic. There is a considerably large section of Indians who go to the US on H1-B visas. The H1-B visa holders earn way more than the median wages. It is something that makes the visa significantly more important as it opens the door to one of the highest-paid markets for immigrants from the developing world.

    The study also focused on the need of raising the cap on the existing numbers of H1-B visas granted every year. In contemporary times every country is easing the visa norms for Indian professionals to attract more talents from India. Recently many countries have signed Free Trade Agreements, and they are readily offering more visas to Indian professionals than ever before. Countries like Australia, Canada, and the UK are already in the fray to attract more professionals from India, and the best part is that they haven’t restricted themselves to only highly skilled professionals. Amid all the global happenings in contemporary times, and the looming uncertainties, the US is all set to streamline the immigration process even further to keep attracting Indian students. In the upcoming years, the US Congress is planning to come up with more flexible options for Indian professionals and IT companies seeking H1-B visas.
