Turkish companies and businesses have been using H1Bs as a backdoor to attract high-skilled workers from India, the UK and elsewhere to the country.
While this is technically illegal, it has created huge demand for cheap labour from the Indian subcontinent.
In 2016, the Indian government announced it would grant a whopping 65,000 H1b visas to Indian employers, according to a report by The New York Times.
The number of applications for these visas has more than doubled in the last year.
But this has only been the tip of the iceberg.
Since March 2017, the Turkish government has also been granting visas to companies that are recruiting in the UK, Australia and other European countries.
This is not just an anomaly.
H1BS is a massive loophole in the system, as the government has been using it for a decade.
According to a recent report from the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), Turkey is the biggest source of H1S visas in the world.
The EIU cited data that showed that in 2017 alone, the number of H3B visas issued by Turkey increased from 830,000 to 2.1 million.
The EIU also found that more than 10% of the total applications for H1, H2 and H3 visas were from Turkish employers.
The figure is even higher when you factor in H1M visas.
These visas allow employers to hire workers from other countries, with the sole intention of getting them to work for them.
This loophole is a key reason why the Turkish economy has been in such a tizzy for the past decade.
This year alone, it is estimated that the Turkish Government has received nearly $4 billion from foreign investors.
According to EIU, Turkey is already home to the world’s second largest economy, behind China.
The country is also a major transit point for the Indian Ocean, and as a result, a growing population is also attracting many foreign workers to its shores.
The situation in Turkey is not helped by a string of recent terrorist attacks in the country, including the one in Istanbul, which left more than 40 people dead.
The attacks also left thousands of people homeless, and sparked a debate on immigration.
Turkey has also faced growing competition from its southern neighbour, Bangladesh.
There, the country has been facing a serious shortage of skilled workers due to the high cost of labour.
It is a particular problem for the IT sector, which has struggled to compete with the Chinese outsourcing industry.
According a report from The Economist Intelligence Report, the cost of training IT workers is estimated at more than $600 per day in Turkey.
In 2016, an IT training facility in the southern province of Izmir was reportedly being shut down by the government due to labour shortages.
The problem of shortage in the IT industry in Turkey has been compounded by the increasing demand for labour from countries like India and the UK.
It has even led to companies taking advantage of the loopholes in the H-1B system to hire foreign workers.
In 2018, Turkish IT firm Zend Technologies announced that it had hired over 2,000 foreign workers in the past year.
Zend’s recruitment in India and UK is only one of the many ways that Turkish companies are exploiting the H2B visa.
Turkish companies have also been hiring workers from the UK to build up the IT infrastructure of Turkey.
According the EIU report, in 2017, more than 70% of all IT graduates who applied for H2Bs were from India.
This figure has only increased in 2018.
Turkish IT graduates are also attracted by the fact that the number and the quality of graduates applying for H-2Bs has increased significantly.
According for example to the EPUC, the IT workforce in Turkey rose by 1.5 million to over 1.7 million in 2018, a rise of more than 30% in the same period last year, the biggest increase in the Turkish IT sector in recent years.
In addition, there were a total of 2,731 new IT graduates in the EU and 7,076 in the US.
Turkey is not alone in using this loophole.
India, too, is struggling to find qualified foreign talent.
According for example, the ESU found that there are more than 400,000 IT graduates from India who are in need of a job in the United States, but that they have to wait a year or more to be hired.
It is also becoming increasingly difficult for the UK-based IT outsourcing firms to compete against Indian outsourcing companies, as India is a more competitive market than the UK due to its smaller population.
For example, IT outsourcing firm Infosys had a market share of 1.2% in India in 2016, while Infosyd, the parent company of Infosyn, was only 1% in 2016.
In the last few years, India has also seen a massive surge in the number, and quality of H-5
