Skilled-Worker Visas See a Surge in Demand

Wall Street Journal (04/09/12) Miriam Jordan

In a development that may signal that the economy is improving, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service says it has seen a sharp increase in petitions for H-1B visas this year. USCIS has received 25,600 petitions for the visas since April 2, almost twice as many as it received for the entire first month of last year’s application period. Some 17,400 of the petitions received in the first week were in the general category of skilled workers, while 8,200 were in the advanced category, for workers with an advanced degree. The increase in visa applications reflects an increase in activity for related businesses such as technology companies.
