  The United States is currently in the midst of significant immigration policy changes, particularly concerning visa application fees. Recently, the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced a hike in application fees across several popular visa categories, including the H1b, L1, and EB-5 visas, which are widely sought after by Indian applicants.
