April 09, 2009

USCIS today released updated information on the number of H-1B petition filings it has received that are subject to the FY2010 cap.  According to the announcement,

"USCIS has received approximately 42,000 H-1B petitions counting toward the Congressionally-mandated 65,000 cap.  The agency continues to accept petitions subject to the general cap. Additionally, the agency has received approximately 20,000 petitions for aliens with advanced degrees; however, we continue to accept advanced degree petitions since experience has shown that not all petitions received are approvable."
