Chinese Nationals Now Eligible For 12-Month, Multiple-Entry H-1B Visas
Hunton Immigration and Nationality Law Blog Has Just Posted the Following:
The Department of State has revised its "visa reciprocity" schedule for China, effective July 9, 2010, allowing US embassies and consulates to issue 1-year, multiple-entry H-1B visas to Chinese nationals. The new reciprocity schedule for China may be viewed at the State Department's website here.
Validity periods and other restrictions on US nonimmigrant visas, such as H-1B visas, are based on the concept of "reciprocity": the validity and limitations another country imposes on US citizens for similar types of visas. Previously, Chinese H-1B visas were limited to 3 months and only 2 entries to the United States, making frequent foreign travel problematic for Chinese H-1B workers and their U.S. employers.
