US has no plans to cap H-1B work visa program

two senior Indian officials told Reuters on Wednesday they had been briefed last week on the US plan to cap the number of h-1b visas given annually to Indian at between 10% and 15% of the total number issued. Te trump administration has no plan to cap h-1b work visas for nations that force foreign to store data locally, the state department said on Thursday. 


There is no country-specific limit on 85000 h-1b work visa the united states issues every year and an estimated 70% of them go to Indians. It  is completely separate from ongoing discussion with India about the importance of ensuring the free flow of data across borders.
