The USA is in process to make a historical change in its existing immigration system. However, this new system is expected to benefit the tens of thousands of skilled workers in India, who aspire to get Green Card visa in America. The immigration reform was one among the key election campaign promises of the US President Donald Trump and now he seems to be working on this diligently.
Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment (RAISE)
Trump has announced his support for Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment (RAISE) Act, which will transform the US immigration to a merit-based immigration system. The new system is likely to favor the talented foreign skilled workers with English Language Proficiency for allocation of the Permanent residency status via Green Card.
If the RAISE is passed by the US Congress and gets converted in to a law, it is likely to benefit the highly skilled and talented technology professionals in India, who are popular worldwide for their excellent English Speaking skills.
The lottery System may Get Abolished if RAISE Implements
Once the RAISE Act becomes a law, the present lottery system being used to immigrate to the US will be replaced by the new point based system. The point system will allocate points to the applicants for the Green Card based on certain key parameters, i.e. Qualification, English Language Proficiency, age, and job offer from US, etc.
Expectations from the new Merit-based System
Announcing his support for RAISE Act, Trump addressed the gathering and revealed objectives and details of the implication of it. Trump said, “The RAISE Act will reduce poverty, increase wages, and save taxpayers billions and billions of dollars. It will do this by changing the way the US issues Green Cards to nationals from other countries. Green Cards provide permanent residency, work authorization, and fast track to citizenship,”
He further assured that the new point based application process would favor the candidates, who are good in English communication, have ability to financially support their stay along with the family, and show qualities to contribute to the economy of the country.
Speaking about the positive influence of the RAISE Act in terms of protection of US workers from displacement and prevention of new immigrants getting welfare frequently, Trump said, “That’s a very big thing. They’re not going to come in and just immediately go and collect welfare. That doesn’t happen under the RAISE Act. They can’t do that. Crucially, the Green Card reforms in the RAISE Act will give American workers a pay raise by reducing unskilled immigration,”.
Good news for the Indian Skilled Professionals
If you are a skilled professional in India looking to live and work in the USA, the new point based immigration system will indeed help you move to US. Indians are already known for their IT talent and English speaking skills, and these are the two things new system will prefer while allocating the Green Card visa to the applicants. We have seen tens of thousands of Indians professionals, every year moving to the countries like Canada and Australia, which has similar point-based immigration system.

A special mention for Mr. Vaibhav Saini who was very approachable and customer friendly and answered all my queries whenever I asked. A big thumbs up to the team and Visas Avenue. Thank you again.
Our experience with Visas Avenue has been a good one. Though initially there was some delay due to the case manager being changed, when my case was taken up by Ms. Priyanka Kandwal, the process has been pretty smooth. I would like to thank her and the team for their patience while handling our case and would like to commend their knowledge and expertise when it comes to the rules and regulations of the whole process. I would highly recommend them for the PR application process and already have done so. Wishing them all the best!!

Thank you Visas Avenue for the wonderful efforts and professionalism to see my application through and get my PR. Would like to use this platform to thank your entire team, especially Arpita and Mrigya who were the ones handling my case and constantly following up diligently to get the documents and timely applications in place. The PR took a while to be received (1 year/ applied last August '18) but I guess that is normal with the current traffic of applicants.Would highly recommend Visas Avenue's service simply due to their professional approach and response to all queries/ e-mail in no time.Good luck to your team and keep up the great work.

I could not have asked for a better case worker. Keep up the good work.
Jasmeet & Archana was very helpful in assisting me and my wife in getting PR for Canada. They explained the step by step process and took a lot of responsibility in making sure our documents are in order. They made sure we don't miss anything and took care to make sure that there was no reason for our application to be rejected. I highly recommend them for all your immigration needs.
