The scrutiny around the visas also picked up drastically for all foreign workers. Indians, though, were subject to more rigorous inspection and were more likely to be issued a Request for Evidence for their applications than other nationalities were, NFAP noted. In the quarter beginning July 2017, 72% of H-1B cases for Indians received RFEs, compared to 61% for all other countries.
