This is a brand-new update for US Visit and US Jobs Aspirants! Business and tourist visa holders in the United States can now apply for jobs and appear for interviews. However, these potential employees were asked to ensure that the candidates had altered the status of their visas before commencing with their new position.
In a series of notes and tweets by the USCIS, it was stated that during the time of layoff of these non-immigrant workers, there was no knowledge about the available options and, in some cases, incorrectly assumed that they had no choice but to move out of the nation within a duration of 60 days.
For those who have asked whether they can seek a new job while on B-1 or B-2 status, the USCIS has informed them in a tweet that ‘yes’ they can, as it is permissible to look for employment. And they can interview for a role and if they are acceptable for B-1 or B-2 activities.
Suppose the employment of a non-immigrant worker is terminated either voluntarily or involuntarily. In that case, they can apply a status adjustment for a “compelling circumstances” employment authorization document or become a beneficiary of a non-frivolous petition to change employer.
