H-1B Update as of May 27th 2010 for FY 2011

leave a comment »

As of May 21, 2010, approximately 19,600 H-1B cap-subject petitions were receipted. Additionally, USCIS has receipted 8,200 H-1B petitions for aliens with advanced degrees.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (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.
If you are interested in pursuing a work permit to the United States and think that you may qualify for an H-1B, please contact us at Mithras Law Group for a consultation.
