Last 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 Fong & Aquino for a consultation. —ecf
