US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced last week that they continued to accept H1B nonimmigrant petitions subject to the Fiscal Year 2011 cap. As of April 8, 2010, USCIS has received approximately 13,500 H1B petitions counting toward the statutory cap of 65,000. The agency has also received approximately 5,600 petitions for individuals with advanced degrees (”master-cap”). With the economy has yet fully recovered and high unemployment rate remains unchanged in the country, we expect the cap will not be exhausted for another few months which can be deemed as good news for those who are eligible for H1b visas.
