USCIS Updates The Tally Of H-1B Petitions Filed Under the Cap

USCIS has once again updated its announcement regarding the number of H-1B petitions received and counted towards the H-1B cap. As of May 4, USCIS has received approximately 45,000 H-1B petitions counting toward the Congressionally-mandated 65,000 cap. As such, USCIS continues to accept petitions subject to the general cap.

Additionally, that USCIS has received approximately 20,000 petitions for aliens with advanced degrees remains unchanged.  As such, the Service continues to accept advanced degree petitions as experience dictates that not all such petitions are approvable. USCIS will continue to provide regular updates on the processing of FY2010 H-1B petitions.
