Specialty Occupation Visas (H1B)
H1B visas are nonimmigrant, employment-based visas for specialized knowledge workers that are commonly used prior to applying for permanent residence. However, in most years, H1Bs come with some baggage, including a quickly exhausted annual visa cap (65,000 general cap; 20,000 master’s cap) that precipitates a nail-biting lottery due to the volume of applications that USCIS receives. In 2015, nearly 233,000 applicants exhausted the cap in the first five business days after the cap opened.
