USCIS Updates FY2010 H-1B Cap Count

Murali Bashyam

On April 9, 2009, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) provided an updated H-1B cap count for petitions filed in the fiscal year 2010 program. USCIS said that it has received approximately 42,000 H-1B petitions counting toward the Congressionally-mandated 65,000 cap.  Additionally, it has received approximately 20,000 petitions for aliens with advanced degrees; however, USCIS will continue to accept advanced degree petitions since not all petitions received are approvable.   As stated in our last article on the H-1B program, USCIS continues to accept H-1B petitions for the regular cap as well.  We will provide more information at www.bashyamspiro.com as it becomes available.
