Default US says speeding up visas for researchers

The United States is speeding up visa applications for researchers and graduate students, an official said Thursday, hoping to ease a long backlog that raised fears that scientists would head elsewhere.


Not sure what 'visa" they're talking about, H-1B or the GC or maybe J, not sure.

Default Its for students

It's for F-1 visa. What else would you expect .......... make it easier for people who are getting in the money to enter ........ then make them captives of the system and let them linger on for decades..... if foreign students are so desperately needed, why not give them permanent residency when they graduate?

What else would you expect? Some graduate schools would go bankrupt if it was not for foreign students bankrolling them through tuition fees. At the end of the line..welcome to H1B RFE if you want to seek employment, cause then you'll not be seen as a researcher, but as a job stealer .

Yes it is for F1, J1 and H1B professors working in sensitive areas like biology etc that get stuck because of background check.
