Just today, USICS released information stating that about 18,000 H-1B applications were received. Also, USCIS has announced that 7,600 H-1B petitions were received for the advanced degree quota.
For those of you keeping track of the H-2B quota, about 65,307 of the 66,000 allocated for this fiscal year have been approved.
Looks like time is running thin for H-2B applicants but that H-1Bs are still available. Call or email us at Fong & Aquino if you are considering applications for H-2B or H-1B. --ecf
