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.
