US Visa cap reached - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Hi! I just want to know something about US working visas. Is October the only month they release H1Bs? I heard that they've reached their allotted cap for this year so those applying shall be defferred next year. Don't they release in April?

Does anybody know how many quotas are still left for ppl with advanced degree?

There is only one quota left for ppl with advanced degrees..the 20K quota..

Only people with Masters/Phd degrees from USA can apply in that quota.

Those are people who came from other countries to study in US, and they need H1B visa in order to work after graduation.

Best regards,

International people who come to US for studying come on a student visa (F-1). To work in a company, the company has to apply for their work permit (H1-B). F-1 is only valid till the time they are in college, and maybe for a year after their studies (if they apply for practical training).
