India largest beneficiary of H-1B visas issued – 24% Increase in H-1B visas issued in FY 2011

leave a comment »

The U.S. Mission to India recently reported that H-1B (specialized skills work visa) issuances in India increased 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, 2011.

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.
