H-1B Visa 2010 – Cap Count Time Table Updated

As of November 20, 2009, approximately 56,900 H-1B cap-subject petitions had been filed.

The USCIS has approved sufficient H-1B petitions for aliens with advanced degrees to meet the exemption of 20,000 under the fiscal year 2010 cap.

Any H-1B petitions filed on behalf of an alien with an advanced degree will now be counted under the general H-1B cap of 65,000.

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reach the statutory limits, taking into account the fact that some of these petitions may either be denied, revoked, or withdrawn.
