Washington : The Trump administration has made it more difficult for the renewal of non-immigrant visas such as H-1b AND L1 popular among Indian IT professionals, saying that the burden of poor lies on the applicant even an extension is sought.

Rescinding its more than 13-year-old policy, the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) said that the burden of proof in establishing eligibility is, at all times, on the petitioner. USCIS said the previous memorandum of April 23,2004 appeared to place this burden on this federal agency.

“This memorandum makes it clear that the burden of proof remains on the petitioner, even where an extension of non-immigrant status is sought,” USCIS said in its latest memorandum issues on October 23.
