More Indians may queue up for US EB-5 visas as tech layoffs spread

The recent spate of layoffs in the US technology industry is likely to result in increased demand for EB-5 investment visas among Indians, immigration experts said.

A significant number of those fired from companies such as Twitter, Amazon and Meta include Indian workers on an H1-B work permit who have up to 60 days to find another job or move to a new visa category.
