FY2013 H-1B Count

April 9, 2012

Counting Peas smaller file size.jpgLast week, I reported that the H-1B cap count was pretty high considering the quota had only been open for 3 days of filing. Today, the CIS released a more accurate count which separates the Bachelor's and Master's cap, the latter of which is nearly half used.

  • H-1B Bachelor's degree cap: 17,400 petitions have been received
  • H-1B Master's degree cap: 8,200 petitions have been received

  • There's no doubt now that the H-1B quota will close much earlier this year. If you need to submit an H-1B application this year, call the attorneys at Law Offices of J Craig Fong for a consultation. ---ecf
