Thank Emandi for the update.

One more query comes in mind that will my H1B be valid irrespective Mr. Trump reforms H1B policies as well for the new H1B?

The H-1b program has been in place for many years and the only minor changes can occur over time. Currently there is no change in the law.

Best wishes,
