FY2013 H1B Cap Update – 16,600 Regular H1Bs Available as of May 25, 2012

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) continues to accept H-1B nonimmigrant petitions that are subject to the fiscal year FY2013 Cap. As of May 25, 2012 USCIS has received approximately 48,400 H-1B petitions counting toward the 65,000 Cap, and approximately 17,500 petitions towards the 20,000 Cap exemption for individuals with advanced degrees. This means that there are 16,600 regualr H1Bs and 2,500 for those with advanced degrees still available. Last week saw a small increase in H1B petitions over the previous week. If H1B petitions continue to be submitted at current rates, the Cap will only last for another 2.5 weeks, or until the middle of June 2012.  If you are in need of an H-1B visa for an employee in a specialty occupation, act quickly while the Cap is still available.
