FY2012 H1B CAP Update

April 13, 2011

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) continues to accept H-1B nonimmigrant petitions that are subject to the fiscal year FY2012 cap. FY2012 began on April 1, 2011 and is expected to last for several months and possibly into 2012. USCIS provides regular updates petitions counting against the H-1B cap of 65,000 and the 20,000 U.S. master’s degree or higher cap exemption. As of April 8, 2011, USCIS has received approximately 5,900 H-1B petitions counting toward the 65,000 cap, and approximately 4,500 petitions toward the 20,000 cap exemption for individuals with advanced degrees. If you are in need of an H-1B visa for an employee in a specialty occupation, the cap is still available.
