Indian IT companies faced with rising U.S. costs

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Changes to the H-1B visa by the US Comprehensive Immigration Bill are expected to lead to increased costs for many Indian IT companies.

The bill itself has been delayed in light of the events surrounding the Boston marathon explosions, but expectations are on increased costs for H-1B visas which most Indian IT firms use for local employees, restrictions on their use are also expected to come into force.

The US Comprehensive Immigration Bill is expected to promote the employment of domestic workers, while the quota of H-1B visas for skilled workers has been increased, added costs and restrictions will decrease the attractiveness of investing in U.S. industries from an overseas-outsourcing perspective.
