FY2011 H-1B Numbers Still Available

The FY2011 period to file H-1B petitions began on April 1, 2010 with an annual quota of 65,000 for holders of Bachelor’s degrees or the equivalent and 20,000 for holders of U.S. Master’s or higher degrees. As of May 11, 2010, the USCIS has received approximately 18,000 Bachelor’s degree petitions and 7,600 Master’s degree petitions. The USCIS will therefore continue to accept H-1B petitions until the quota is met so please contact our office if you’d like our assistance with your H-1B petition.
