As of October 15, 2010, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services ("USCIS") has confirmed the filing of approximately 42,800 H-1B cap-subject petitions for fiscal year 2011. USCIS also reported the filing of approximately 15,700 of the additional 20,000 H-1B cases reserved for holders of advanced U.S. degrees. This leaves room for approximately 22,200 new H-1B approvals under the 2011 "Regular" Cap quota, and 4,300 H-1B approvals under the 2011 "Masters" Cap quota. USCIS will continue to accept all eligible H-1B cases until a sufficient number of H-1B and H-1B1 petitions have been received to reach the statutory limits.
