H-1B FY11 Cap Case Update -- Slots are Still Available

As of May 21, 2010 approximately 19,600 H-1B cap-subject petitions and approximately 8,200 petitions qualifying for the U.S. earned advanced degree cap exemption had been filed for fiscal year 2011. The regular limit (for non advanced degree cases) is 65,000 H-1B approvals per year. 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to reach the annual limits, taking into account the fact that some of these petitions may be denied, revoked, or withdrawn. USCIS updates the H-1B cap count about twice a month. In the two week period leading up to the May 21st update, USCIS received 600 new cap-subject H-1B cases and 100 advanced-degree petitions.
