U.S. Immigration and Citizenship Services (USCIS) updated the number of FY2010 H-1B petitions received as of June 5, 2009: approximately 44,400 H-1B cap-subject petitions have been received and counted toward the cap. The statutory limit in the “basic degree” category is 65,000. USCIS indicated that it has received approximately 20,000 petitions qualifying for the “advanced degree” cap exemption. USCIS will continue to accept both cap-subject petitions and advanced degree petitions until a sufficient number of H-1B petitions have been received to reach the statutory limits.
