Few days back I posted H1B Visa Salary for 2009.
In addition to that H1B Visa approval based on country will give more insight to applicants from various countries.
Most approval are given to Indian Citizens even though number of Chinese students studying in USA is much higher.
Approved H-IB petitions 2009
- 48 percent reported that the beneficiary was born in India.
- India is followed by China (10%)
- Number of H1B approvals from India approved for initial employment decreased 45% (2008 vs 2009)
- Number of H1B beneficiaries approved for continuing employment decreased 21% (2008 vs 2009)
It will be interesting to see the comparison of 2009 vs 2010 number which will be published next year.
In the above table China dosen’t (About 2%) have much decrease in H1B petitions compared to India. Do you know what could be the reason behind that?
