24% rise in H1B issuance from Indian missions of U.S.
New Delhi, 25 October, 2011
The U.S. Mission to India saw H-1B (specialized skills work visa) issuances in India increase 24% between the U.S. Government’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 and FY2010. This marks a total increase from 54,111 issued in 2010 to 67,195 in 2011. The U.S. Government’s fiscal year extends from October through September; FY2011 recently concluded on September 30.
This 24% increase is tied to the highest ever H-1B application and issuance rates in the history of the U.S. Mission to India, and illustrates the booming nature of U.S.-India business relations. India is the single largest beneficiary of H-1B visas by a wide margin: in the past four years, applicants in India have received more than twice as many H-1B visas as the four next-highest countries combined.
India also remains the leader in issuances of L-1 (intra-company transfer) visas, issuing more than 25,000 L-1s in FY 2011 – or 37% of issuances worldwide.
Visa applicants from any location in India may visit the U.S. Embassy’s website at http://newdelhi.usembassy.gov or e-mail the Mission at firstname.lastname@example.org for free and accurate visa information direct from the source.
