==H1 B Transfer== I have a valid H1B stamped but my sponser hasn't given me neither the original H1B petition nor a copy of those documents. My question is can I have my existing H1B transfered to a new employer? If I do not have a copy of petition how can I get it? - apoore20.139.67.50 11:57, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

The Section on the validity of an H1 to remain in the US after termination is almost complete inaccurate to the point that one wonders if it was written knowing that it was false. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.77.129.3 (talk) 13:20, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Section 2016 presidential election and the H-1B visa

"However, despite political maneuvering by Sanders, Congress's own commissioned report found that [H-1B workers] received lower wages, less senior job titles, smaller signing bonuses and smaller pay and compensation increases than would be typical for the work they actually did." This in no way contradicts Bernie Sanders point. So the point of this statement is ...? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.181.100.67 (talk) 21:36, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

RfC on H-1B and path to permanent residency and policital bias[edit]

Closing with no result. Multiple RfC participants said there was no clear proposal.

The section titled 'H-1B and path to permanent residency' seems to have an anti-immigration bias in my opinion.

I don't believe the claims of the IT sector using it for cheap labor are true. Also terms like "gaming the system" illustrate this isn't content with strong fact behind it. This section should be balanced with how H1B visas are used properly in the educated professional space as a path to perm status. --MassNerd (talk) 21:28, 2 October 2018 (UTC)


This RFC is premature, see WP:RFCBEFORE. Discuss this on the talk page with involved editors and try to reach a consensus before calling people in via RFC. Alternatively, be WP:BOLD and make edits that you see fit. Looking over the sourcing provided for the examples you've highlighted, it does seem that the wording is not backed up by sources provided, making it WP:SYNTH at best.signed, Rosguill talk 19:14, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
I think there are well documented abuses of H-1B https://qz.com/india/1390239/h-1b-visa-abuse-people-tech-group-guilty-of-underpaying-employees/ , https://qz.com/india/1377844/h-1b-visa-fraud-indian-ceo-accused-of-duping-us-immigration/. Think some tech giants where also suspects like IBM, Microsoft etc — Preceding unsigned comment added by MrStefanWolf (talkcontribs) 22:42, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
  • This RfC is clearly premature, but I tend to agree with the core point. There's no intrinsic connection between intent to immigrate and abuse. Intent to immigrate is built into the law. The US government (or at least the Congress that passed the relevant laws) wants (or at least wanted) H1B recipients to have the ability to immigrate, because they are by definition highly skilled technical workers, who benefit the US economy.

Maybe there is not intention from immigrants but there clearly is by their employers, they are the one in position to abuse it in first place. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MrStefanWolf (talkcontribs) 09:31, 9 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Statements like "the system has been abused and is often a route to Permanent residence" and "the non-immigrant visa becomes by virtue an immigrant visa" should be given context, not stated in Wikipedia's voice. Maybe this belongs in the criticism section, too? ☆ Bri (talk) 23:30, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Comment RFC is not written in a neutral manner. I suggest this RFC be closed and reopened in a clear and concise question in a neutral tone. Sir Joseph (talk) 13:40, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
  • I've removed a bit of text and a source that was being misused, which may help. But I agree this RFC can be closed with no particular result. There's no clear proposal in the RFC request, and it doesn't take an RFC for anyone to try to improve the section (unless an irreconcilable editing dispute occurs).
