The United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) updated its H-1B cap count on August 6, 2010.   Here are the most recent cap numbers:

Regular H-1B Cap:  28,500

U.S. Masters H-1B Cap: 11,900

The H-1B numbers are moving very slowly.  It is likely a result of the economy and different adjudication standards by the USCIS.  The bottom line, however, is that employers have plenty of time to make a decision on hiring a worker who may need an H-1B visa.

We will update our web site at www.bashyamspiro.com when more information becomes available.
