When Immigration Matters

H-1B Visa Count (January 14, 2011) | 4300 Regular Cap Visas Remain

Posted by Karen Pollak on Jan 19, 2011, 9:50:00 AM

USCISAs of December, 24, 2010, the Master's exemption number for H-1B has been reached. For the regular H-1B cap, we are in the final stretch and expect the remaining 4300 H-1B visas to be used  in the next 2-3 weeks. 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!

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