New Stem Visa Law To Help Us Economy
As for those who are not students of the STEM field, they can still apply for American visa as long as they are passport holders of any of the member-countries to the Visa Waiver Program (VWP).
December 10, 2012 (Newswire.com) - After the recent US presidential election, the main focus now of the Obama administration is to reform the immigration laws to provide answer to the problem of undocumented workers. Another problem that is faced by the administration in terms of immigration is that a lot of foreign students who are able to study in the US and acquire the STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) skills end up working for other foreign companies because their visas do not let them stay in the US any longer.
In response to these revelations, the STEM Jobs Act was created to reallocate about 55,000 visas to students who have a graduate degree or Ph.D. in any STEM field. By doing so, there is a win-win situation created between the US and these foreign students. For instance, the US is able to keep the jobs that these people create, including the industries that they will eventually create. As for the foreign students, they can continue to work and start their own business in the US and enjoy the booming economy.
As for those who are not students of the STEM field, they can still apply for American visa as long as they are passport holders of any of the member-countries to the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). Such VWP allows visa-free entry to the US using the ESTA visa. They no longer have to lodge a US visa application and come for an interview at any US consulate as they can do it online. As soon as the visa waiver is acquired, the holder is entitled to travel to the US for up to three months each visit for a span of 2 years. However, holding this ESTA US visa form does not guarantee the holder entry to the US upon arrival. They will still be subjected to screening by border and customs officials in the US.
