How Many H1-B Visas Are Issued Each Year ?

The number of H-1B visas issued each year is subject to a cap set by the United States government.

For the fiscal year 2022, the H-1B cap was

set at 85,000, with 65,000 visas reserved for foreign workers in specialty occupations

and an additional 20,000 visas reserved for foreign workers

who have earned a master's degree or higher from a U.S. university.

However, it's worth noting that certain categories of H-1B workers

such as those employed by institutions of higher education

or certain nonprofit research organizations, are exempt from the cap.
