H-1B Visa Count (November 5, 2010)

Posted by Karen Pollak on Nov 10, 2010, 3:52:00 PM

USCISThe Master's exemption number for H-1B is close to the quota (less than 3,800 remaining). For the regular H-1B cap, the rate remains around 1,200 new petitions per week.  It reflects the sluggish economy, the high unemployment (9.6%) and the tax uncertainty.

The good news is that you can still apply for the fiscal year 2011! It is also possible that we can see before the hollidays and after the elections a surge in H1-B applications.

More information can be found at the USCIS H-1B Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 Cap Season Page.
