H1B Visa Cap update

The H1B visa filing status seems to be the main issue for clients and site visitors in the past week. USCIS announced today that the H-1B cap has not been reached and it continues to accept H-1B petitions for both the 65,000 regular cap and the 20,000 higher-degree cap. Should USCIS receive the necessary number of petitions to meet the respective caps, it will issue another update to advise the public that, as of a certain date (the “final receipt date”), the respective FY 2010 H-1B caps have been met. So for now, we can keep filing.
