H1B Visa Cap Update November 2011 – Visas are going faster this year, hurry to file!!

So the race for H1b Visas is on. As of October 28, 2011, USCIS received approximately 49,200 H-1B petitions counting towards the congressionally mandated 65,000 limit. USCIS also confirmed that it has received approximately 20,000 H-1B petitions for employees with advanced degrees from U.S. colleges and universities.

The annual limit on H-1B petitions in the advanced degree category is 20,000. Accordingly, USCIS is still accepting H-1B petitions under the general cap. Employees with advanced degrees from U.S. colleges and universities may still apply under the general cap.

The H-1B numbers are being used at a faster rate this year than they were last year. In October 2010, USCIS had received approximately 45,600 H-1B petitions counting towards the congressionally mandated 65,000 limit and approximately 16,700 H-1B petitions for employees with advanced degrees from U.S. colleges and universities.
