Within US H1B Visa Renewal Pilot Program to Start as soon as January 2024

Posted by Nishu Sharma | Nov 29, 2023 | 0 Comments

According to the recent Bloomberg Law Report, a limited number of H-1B specialty occupation workers will be able to renew their visas in the United States as soon as January 2024, State Department Officials announced. The rollout of the H-1B domestic visa renewal pilot will be limited to just 20,000 participants at first and will allow H-1B holders to renew their visas by mailing them to DOS rather than travel outside the United States and face uncertain wait times to secure an appointment at a U.S. consular office before returning. A federal register notice with full details is expected to be published next month.

The agency is also working to extend interview waivers for certain temporary visas and offers a digital visa for travel to the US. Discretion for consular offices to waive interviews for visa applicants who would otherwise be required to appear in person has been key to improving efficiency.
