Updated FY 2012 H1B Cap Count – The Cap will soon be filled!

The most recent H1B Cap update from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) indicates that they have received 20,000 cases towards the H-1B Master’s Exemption. This means that there are no more H-1B Master’s Exemption numbers left for FY 2012. The new report indicates that 50,800 H-1B regular Cap cases have been received, leaving only 14,200 regular Cap numbers for FY2012. Taking into account the 6,800 H-1B visas set aside each year for the U.S. Chile and U.S. Singapore Free Trade Agreements this means there are only 7,400 H-1B Cap numbers left for FY2012. The amount of cases received this week dropped over previous weeks. If H-1B petitions continue to be submitted at the current rates, the FY2012 H1B Cap could be filled around the middle of December. This places additional urgency on employers seeking foreign specialty workers. Failure to secure a FY2012 H-1B Cap number could mean that the employee will have to wait until October 1, 2012 to begin work.
