The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services announced recently that this year’s worker visas have all been allotted.

Employers must apply for these H-1B visas to sponsor people to work in the United States, and this year 483,927 applications were received, said Michael Durham, a partner at Barnes & Thornburg LLP’s South Bend and Chicago offices. The USCIS selected 127,600. Last year, it received 308,613 applications for 131,970 visas.
