For the 5th consecutive year, the cap was reached in the first week for the H-1B visa, which is the prototypical visa for educated employees wishing to come to the U.S. to work in specialized jobs. In other words, there are 85,000 H-1B visas allowed each year, and the number of applications exceeded that amount in 5 days.  Click here to read more on this.  If you have any questions on H-1B Visas, or any other immigration issues, please contact me at wcmenard@nmmlaw.com.
