Looking for US Visa Retrogression (Backlog) News and Updates? : Filipino Nurses News – Latest & Hottest News about Pinoy Nurses Worldwide

Looking for US Visa Retrogression (Backlog) News and Updates?

· Filed Under Insights, Work in the US 

People are asking us if we have any US Visa Retrogression news and updates for them. There has been a lot of talks about this issue again lately because of the perceived oversupply of nurses in the Philippines. But what is the real reason why so many people are looking for the US Visa retrogression news and updates?

It is the fact that many Pinoy nurses prefers to still work in the US.

Pinoys still desperately believe that the key to their being rich is in the US mainland. With what is happening now in the Philippine local economy and the world economic crisis, we can’t blame Filipinos to dream big in the US even if the US economy is still dwindling. This is one of the primary reasons why most high school graduates, even if they dont want Nursing personally, will take up Nursing as they are led to believe that nursing is their ticket to America.

But with limitations that the US retrogression offers, the long wait and dying hopes is frustrating many people mostly nursing graduates. In the meantime, what will the nurses do. Even the call centers are rumored to reject nursing students to become call center agents. So if they stay in the Philippines, what else will they do? For some, they will most likely take odd jobs and shortchange themselves for what’s their worth.

With the worldwide aspiration to go to the US competing at each other, we can only imagine that the backlog (retrogression) of US Visa will continue to be a major hindrance for many Filipinos to go to the States. The only real hope in the horizon is the passing of the US Emergency Nursing Supply Release Act of 2008 or HR 5924.

For the latest update on retrogression, here is the latest July 2008 US Visa Bulletin.
