US Visa cap reached - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including 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?

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).

    Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
