Do B1/B2 visas have issuance CAP/limit similar to H1B?


Recommended Posts


I would like to ask following questions related to B1/B2 visas:

  • Is there a CAP for B1/B2 visas on per country basis? If yes does it align with the US fiscal year i.e. April 1 to September 30 each year or does it apply quarter wise?
  • Is there a CAP on total number of B1/B2 visas that can be issued during a fiscal year by US govt.?

I would imagine that B1/B2 visa are less restrictive in nature since they are given for tourism/business purposes that help US economy. Immigration intent might be one of the concerns that opposes giving out unlimited visa. I wanted to confirm this from the experts here.


Thanks for help!
