USCIS H-1B Quota Update – 61,500

December 9, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

USCIS confirmed that as of December 8, 2009, it received 61, 500 H-1B petitions.  Even though the general H-1B quota is 58,200 after subtracting Singapore and Chile visa numbers out of 65,000 general cap, USCIS continues to accept H-1B petitions as of December 8, 2009.  This is partly because there might be some unused Singapore and Chile H-1B1 visa numbers from the previous fiscal year that probably got added to the current fiscal year.  USCIS never discloses how many of these unused numbers got added to the current year’s quota.  In any event, it is highly likely that the quota might reach cap in a few days.  I will continue to monitor the numbers and will try to post the latest information on the blog.
