H1B Visa- The #1 Work Visa H-1B Cap Count

The H-1B Visa is the number one visa option for professionals with at least a bachelors degree or bachelors degree equivalent.  One’s occupation must meet the muster of being classed as a “specialty occupation”.

H1B visas are “capped” visas.  A limited number of visas are available each year and once the cap is reached, no further visas are available until the fiscal year reopens each April.  Historically, when the fiscal year opens the visa cap has been met in one to two days.  It has been a literal race for law firms across the country to capture a visa number for their clients.   A lottery has even been set in place by USCIS after the cap has been reached for “lucky” individuals to be counted.

The good news is that there are still H-1B visas available for the current fiscal year. However, the latest update on visa numbers is listed below:

FY2011 H-1B Cap Count (Updated 10/05/10)
USCIS updated its count of FY2011 cap-subject H-1B petitions and advanced degree cap-exempt petitions receipted. As of 10/1/10, approximately 40,600 H-1B cap-subject petitions were receipted. USCIS has receipted 14,900 H-1B petitions for aliens with advanced degrees.
