US to overlook concerns raised by India over H1B visa fee hike

India has highlighted the issue of visa fee hike at several stages to the United States of America, as the hike hinders the free movement of skilled workers between both the countries.

Speaking at a press conference at the end of the strategic and commercial dialogue between the two nations, Pritzker said: "It is imperative that we look into that issue."
