Chinese Discuss Work Visas in a U.S. Recession

Ming Pao Daily, Posted: Dec 10, 2008

NEW YORK The Council of Overseas Chinese Services (COCS) recently held a workshop in New York to discuss how to keep legal immigrant status during the recession and a time of job loss. The Ming Pao Daily reports that immigration attorneys expect the recession will last for at least a year. They suggested that immigrants who are working on H1B visas should keep their current job but start looking for another position. If necessary, their new employer could apply for another H1B for them as a backup. If H1B workers who dont have a backup visa get laid off, the attorneys advise that they try to immediately land another job. USCIS must receive the new H1B application before the old H1B visa expires otherwise, the visa holder must leave the country. Securing legal status through marriage to a U.S. citizen is the most convenient way for immigrants but they still must have active legal status.
