H1B FY 2010 Cap Count, June 5, 2009 : Visa Numbers Rollsback - 44,400

Tuesday, June 09, 2009 | , ,

As of June 5, 2009, approximately 44,400 H-1B cap-subject petitions and approximately 20,000 petitions qualifying for the advanced degree cap exemption had been filed. USCIS will continue to accept both cap-subject petitions and advanced degree petitions until a sufficient number of H-1B petitions have been received to reach the statutory limits, taking into account the fact that some of these petitions may be denied, revoked, or withdrawn.

This is 1,400 number less than what USCIS announced on May 29, 2009. USCIS has deducted erroneous filed cases from the total count. This is first time that we have ever seen rollback in H1B Visa Cap number from USCIS. Very encouraging.
