H-1B visa cap reached already

For the sixth consecutive year, every available H-1B visa was snapped up within five days. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services hit its annual cap of 65,000 regular H-1B visa petitions and 20,000 master’s petitions on April 6.

H-1B visas allow U.S. employers to employ a limited number of foreign workers in specialty occupations, often in the high-tech fields.
