Although, the number of visa petitions, approved by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, do not reflect final number of visas issued by the State Department because they verify each cases individually before the issuance of visa. H1b visa is not only used to hire IT professionals from foreign country, it is also used to hire professors, doctors, accountants, and architects from foreign country.
