The number of H-1B visa applications - nonimmigrant speciality work permits - has dropped significantly this year. Whereas in past years, the applications exceeded the allowed quota, this recessionary years has 20,000 remaining applications (out of a total quota of the 65,000 subject category) as of mid-April.
