USCIS Updates H-1B Cap Count Thru June 11
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has announced that as of June 11, 2010, it has received an overall total of 31,600 H-1B filings counted toward the fiscal year 2011 (FY2011) H-1B cap.
This total is comprised of 22,200 filings allocated to the "general" H-1B cap and another 9,400 filings applied to the "Advanced Degree" cap that is reserved for visa beneficiaries who have earned a master's degree or higher from an accredited educational institution in the U.S.
USCIS notes that it "continues to accept H-1B nonimmigrant petitions subject to the Fiscal Year 2011 (FY 2011) cap," and that it "will monitor the number of petitions received for both the 65,000 general cap and the 20,000 U.S. master's degree or higher educational exemption."
Goel & Anderson will provide regular updates on H-1B usage as they become available.
