USCIS UPDATES H-1B CAP COUNT FOR FY2010 — AT 55,600

USCIS just issued an update of the H-1B cap count for fiscal year 2010 (present year) — as of November 13, 2009, approximately 55,600 H-1B cap-subject petitions had been filed. USCIS has approved sufficient H-1B petitions for foreign nationals with advanced degrees to meet the exemption of 20,000 from the fiscal year 2010 cap, so all the remaining filings will now count toward the general H-1B cap of 65,000. It’s now down to the last 10,000 H-1Bs, or a bit less, so hurry up if you intend to file.
