Good article from the Wall Street Journal. My friend Vivek Wadhwa is quoted regarding the new reverse brain drain.

    They will base themselves across the border in Canada, yet closer to the US and fly in US clients when necessary...they are not going to hire Americans.

    Poll: Surprising demand for immigration reform

    India may drag US to the World Trade Organisation for its new "protectionist" move in hiking professional visa fees, a step that will make Indian IT companies less competitive in the American market.

    The fee hike is expected to cost Indian companies, mainly IT outsourcing firms, about $ 200 million annually.

    India "cannot keep quite" on an issue that hurts its commercial interests, Commerce Secretary Rahul Khullar said on Tuesday, making it clear that moving the WTO on the matter is being considered seriously.

    Good, unfortunately by the time the WTO rules on this matter the November elections have come and gone and the populist rhetoric behind this measure has done its work.

    More likely India will hike visa fees on inter-firm transfers..ie., microsoft wanting to transfer an American to India..Microsoft will respond by moving that job to Singapore, just like Infosys is likely to respond by moving the operations to Canada..in the end both India and US will loose out big time and Canada and Singapore will gain!

    There is the reverse brain drain & to top it anyone with brains would not come to the US in this doomed economy & screwed up immigration system. I am not talking only about IT but healthcare professionals & even approved FB category people have decided to stay back in India.

    True! My visascreen is to expire within next 6 months. I have to sit for another English proficiency test to revalidate my Visascreen certificate! Moreover, my sponsor hospital has been closed. I need to pay additional attorney and filing fee to keep my PD. I have lost thousands of dollars! Please remember that an Indian nurse earns not more than 2500 dollars a year as salaray. I have lost my entire two years total earnings. I dont trust the US immigration System anymore. I am moving to Australia. Good bye America.

    @Indian Nurse, it's better to move on rather wait for nurses mainly Indian nurses. Canada, Australia, New Zealand are good options if you are planning to immigrate. If not the middle east remains the best option with the tax free income. Of late they increased the salaries too & nurses there do not have any plans to come to the US even if their PD is current.

    Keynes said that in the long-run we all will be dead..he was actually wrong..with shortage of medical manpower, in the short-run we all will be dead!
