H-1B update for FY 2011

leave a comment »

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in its most recent update has announced that as of April 15, 2010, approximately 13,600 H-1B cap-subject petitions had been filed.  USCIS has received 5,800 H-1B petitions for aliens with advanced degrees against a cap of 20,000 master’s degree or higher education exemption.
USCIS continues to accept H-1B non-immigrant petitions subject to the Fiscal Year 2011 (FY 2011) cap. Once the USCIS receives the necessary number of petitions to meet the cap, it will issue an update that the FY 2011 H-1B cap has been met.
Petitions filed by employers who are exempt from the cap or petitions filed on behalf of current H-1B workers who have been counted previously against the cap within the past six years will not count toward the congressionally mandated H-1B cap.
Our office continues to accept new H-1B cases as long as the H-1B cap remains open. Please contact our office if you are interested in being a client of ours.
