H1-B visa draws poor response from techies

 “USCIS has received approximately 5,900 H-1B petitions counting toward the 65,000 cap, and approximately 4,500 petitions toward the 20,000 cap exemption for individuals with advanced degrees,” the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) said in a statement, a week after it started receiving applications for the visas for the fiscal year 2012 beginning October 1, 2011.

As such, USCIS said it would continue to receive applications for the H-1B visa till the caps are reached. The popular work visa is the most sought after by Indian IT professionals.
