Infosys and Cognizant got highest H1B Visa rejections!
The US Citizenship and Immigration department has recently revealed the statistics on the number of visas rejected in the fiscal year 2018 and for which organization employees they have refused to extend or approve the visas. The highest number of H1-B visas were raised by Infosys and Cognizant, in which Cognizant raised more than that of the Infosys.
Out of all visa requests raised by Cognizant, the USCIS rejected 3,548 petitions and this remains the highest rejection number for the year 2018. US Immigration rejected 2,042 visa requests of Infosys and 1,744 of TCS. Only 6 Indian companies (TCS, Infosys, Wipro, CTS, Tech Mahindra, and HCL) in a total of 30 Companies raised foreign worker visa in the USA, and only 16 percent of total visa requests raised by these 6 companies got approved, ie., just 2,145 approvals.
The number of H-1B visas approved by the US govt for these 6 companies together is still less than the total number of visas approved for Amazon company. Though the 6 companies refused to comment on the high rejection rate of visas, expert opine this obstructs the IT development eventually.
