H-1B Quota Update - Little Change

August 10, 2010

As of August 6, 2010, approximately 28,500 regular H-1B cap cases have been receipted by USCIS and approximately 11,900 advanced degree cases. Keeping in mind that H-1B extensions and changes of employer petitions don't count against the cap, initial H-1B applicants are in good shape this fiscal year since the quota is far from being exhausted. ---ecf
