USCIS Updates H-1B Cap Count

As of June 19, 2009, approximately 44,500 H-1B cap-subject petitions and approximately 20,000 petitions qualifying for the advanced degree cap exemption had been filed. USCIS will continue to accept both cap-subject petitions and advanced degree petitions until a sufficient number of H-1B petitions have been received to reach the statutory limits. 

This represents a 100 case increase since the last USCIS update on June 5th.  It appears that the H-1B cap may not be reached for this fiscal year. 

We will provide additional updated as they become available.
