After US, Singapore started blocking Visas for Indian IT Professionals


Singapore has ended up being one of the nations restricting foreign professionals in its country. The quantity of IT professionals working in Singapore has dropped after the government said it will lead a “economic needs test” (ENT), which requires consistence with certain economic criteria. The visas for IT professionals to work in Singapore have dropped, driving the government to put on hold the survey of the Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement (CECA) refering to infringement of the exchange settlement.

“They are doing it in spite of the CECA clearly expressing that there will be no ENT or quotas on agreed services. This is an infringement of the understanding,” an Indian officer told TOI.

With protectionism position developing in UK and the US, Indian IT organizations, for example, TCS , Wipro , Cognizant , L&T Infotech and HCL, are moving some of their operations to different nations in the area.

“This (visa issue) has been waiting for some time yet since mid 2016, visas are down to a stream. All Indian organizations have gotten communication on reasonable thought, which fundamentally implies hiring local individuals,” Nasscom president R Chandrashekhar told TOI.

IT Professionals do face such obstacles, particularly in the administrations trade as nations demand satisfying different conditions, including guaranteeing that a local professional is given the first chance in the event that he or she has the same or  similar talent.
