USCIS Announces that FY2012 H-1B Cap reached on Nov. 22

November 23, 2011

USCIS announced today that the H-1B cap for FY2012 was reached on Tuesday, November 22, 2011.  According to the announcement, USCIS will continue to accept and process petitions that are otherwise exempt from the cap. In addition, petitions filed on behalf of current H-1B workers who have been counted previously against the cap will not be counted toward the FY 2012 H-1B cap. Accordingly, USCIS will continue to accept and process petitions filed to:

  • extend the amount of time a current H-1B worker may remain in the U.S.;
  • change the terms of employment for current H-1B workers;
  • allow current H-1B workers to change employers; and
  • allow current H-1B workers to work concurrently in a second H-1B position.
