US President-elect Joe Biden plans to increase the number of high-skilled visas, including the H-1B, and eliminate the limit on employment-based visas by country, both of which are expected to benefit tens of thousands of Indian professionals impacted by some immigration policies of the outgoing Trump administration.

"High skilled temporary visas should not be used to disincentivise recruiting workers already in the US for in-demand occupations," according to a policy document issued by the Biden campaign.
