Get an Edge with the H-1b Employment Visa

The demand for H-1b visas in the United States is so great that just last year the USCIS received more applications than it had visas to offer by noon the first day it accepted them! Proof of the steady demand increase for H-1b visas is seen in the fact that in 2006 the visa quota was not reached until 4 months after the day USCIS starting accepting applications. In just two years, the demand has sky-rocketed. This past year the USCIS was forced to have to use a lottery system just to choose the applications it would even process. Each year the US government allots 66,000 H-1b visa. Last year, the USCIS received over 66,000 applications by noon the very first day it began to accept them It’s clear U.S. companies are taking advantage of this system to stay as competitive as possible. The need to use this sort of lottery system has never occurred in the history of Immigration in the US.
