H-1B Cap Count for FY 2010

Nov 4, 2009 | H-1B

According to the USCIS’ latest count, as of October 30, 2009, approximately 53,800 H-1B cap-subject petitions had been filed. USCIS has approved sufficient H1-B petitions for noncitizens with advanced degrees to meet the exemption of 20,000 from the fiscal year 2010 cap.  Any H1-B petitions filed on behalf of an noncitizen with an advanced degree will now count toward the general H1-B cap of 65,000.
