Enhanced Access & Streamlined Applications for Skilled Workers!

The draft executive order emphasizes improving the ability of immigrants with AI expertise to obtain green cards or work in U.S. companies leading in AI and other emerging technologies. This move will likely make the U.S. a more attractive destination for AI talent from around the world, which in turn can boost US competitiveness in the tech sector. The order also streamlines visa applications and appointments for immigrants who plan to work on AI or other critical technologies, significantly reducing waiting times and bureaucratic hurdles for AI professionals wanting to work in the U.S.
