USCIS receives 58,900 H-1B Petitions

December 1, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

The USCIS confirmed that as of November 27, 2009, it received 58,900 H-1B petitions which are counted towards the 65,000 general H-1B cap.  That is 700 petitions more than the generally allotted 58,200 visas.  As you may be aware, Singapore and Chile have 6800 combined H-1B1 numbers counted in the general cap too.  This means USCIS is likely to announce in the next few days that the H-1B quota has reached the cap.  As of now, it continues to accept H-1B petitions in general H-1B quota.
