It is important that you understand these numbers

By law, the H-1B visa is limited to 85,000 per year.

But the data shows that there is a little extra each year because of initial and continuing approvals.

These numbers can best be shown by the orange and grey lines on this chart.

I have downloaded their data and added it to this report.

For 2019, we had 664,616 H-1B applications aka LCA’s.

We had 117,436 Initial Approvals

We had 190,284 Continuing Approvals

This is a combined total of 307,720 H-1B Approvals.

and here is the governments own report showing the 664,616 number
