Current H1B visa availability

Harlan York, the #1 Immigration Attorney. Your best choice for an Immigration Attorney if you live in Bergen County, NJ (Hackensack and Garfield).


As of last week, USCIS had received approximately 13,600 H1B petitions counting toward the 65,000 cap.

Moreover, about 5800 petitions have been filed for “advanced degree exemption” applicants.  This category maxes out at 20,000.

There are still, obviously, a good numbers of H1B visas available.

However, in May and June, employers contact us to obtain our legal assistance, in sponsoring H-1B applicants who have just graduated from college.

H1B Visas are foreign workers in specialty occupations, often computer specialists and other fields which require a  baccalaureate or advanced degree.
