April 12th, 2007

USCIS has provided an update on the H-1B petitions received that are subject to the cap and has announced that the US master’s degree cap has not yet been reached.  USCIS received 12,989 H-1B petitions subject to the US master’s degree cap on April 2nd and 3rd.  Since 20,000 numbers are available under this cap, USCIS will continue to accept H-1B petitions where the beneficiary has a US master’s degree.
