The business immigration attorneys at Fong & Aquino have been asked numerous times when the H-1B cap will be reached, or whether the quota is closing soon. While no one knows when the H-1B cap will be reached, USCIS has released some recent numbers of the current H-1B usage.
As of May 6, approximately 10,200 petitions have been received for the regular, Bachelor's degree quota while approximately 7,300 petitions have been received for the advanced degree quota.
It seems that the H-1B quota is still wide open and those interested in consulting with the attorneys at Fong & Aquino for potential applications should give us a call as soon as possible given the fact that it can take USCIS months to adjudicate H-1B petitions. ---ecf
