As per recent release by USCIS, regular cap has utilized till date 62,800 visas. Just to remind our readers, all application submitted under Masters Cap will be counted towards regular cap.

As per American Immigration Lawyer Association (AILA), USCIS has 6,350 H-1B Singapore and Chile unused numbers from FY 2010. The readers should remember that available visa numbers for regular cap cases is not 65,000. Not all H-1B visa are subject to this annual cap. Please note that up to 6,800 visas may be set aside from the cap of 65,000 during each fiscal year for the H-1B1 program under the terms of the legislation implementing the U.S.-Chile and U.S.-Singapore Free Trade Agreements. Unused numbers in this pool are made available for H-1B use for the next fiscal year. From last year we still have these 6,350 unused visa numbers.

Taking this into account, H1B Cap for FY 2011 will not be reached until regular cap has utilized around 64,350 total visas under regular cap.
