USCIS has announced that the H1B cap count continues to inch forward, with an approximate count of 45,000 as of July 3, 2009. This is a slight increase over the last count. As of this writing, both the advanced-degree and regular caps remain open for FY2010.
We will continue to provide updated H-1B cap count information, as and when it is made available.
Employers can still file fresh H-1B petitions considering that H-1 cap is still there.
