H-1B Cap Count for FY 2011 as of October 15, 2010
Posted By Verma Law Firm
USCIS stated that as of October 15, 2010, approximately 42,800 H-1B cap-subject petitions had been filed. Additionally, 15,700 H-1B petitions for aliens with advanced degrees had been received by USCIS. USCIS will continue to accept both cap-subject petitions and advanced degree petitions until a sufficient number of H-1B petitions have been received to reach the statutory limits, taking into account the fact that some of these petitions may be denied, revoked, or withdrawn.
