New Delhi sources stated that External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said that India will raise the issue of changing H1B visa norms with the US at the 2+2 dialogue scheduled to be held on September 6 in New Delhi and Sushma Swaraj told Rajya Sabha “They are already raising the issue formally at various foray and are speaking on it with the White House, with state administration as well as with Congressmen and they will raise it humbly at the 2+2 dialogue on September 6 in New Delhi".

Meanwhile she said that although there has been “no major change so far” in the H1B visa policy from the US side but the prevailing sentiment in the US about tightening of visa norms was a cause of concern for the “Indian government, the opposition members and the entire House”. Moreover the minister said that in fact the number of visas has actually gone up from 1,08,000 in 2014 to 1,29,000 in 2018.
