USCIS Updates FY 2010 H-1B Count


As of September 25, 2009, approximately 46,700 H-1b cap-subject petitions and approximately 20,000 petitions qualifying for the advanced degree cap exemption had been filed. USCIS will continue 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to reach the statutory limits, taking into account the fact that some of these petitions may be denied, recoked or withdrawn.
