The United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) updated its H-1B cap count on December 10, 2010.   Here are the most recent cap numbers:

Regular H-1B Cap:  52,400.

U.S. Masters H-1B Cap: 19,100.

The regular H-1B cap is set at 65,000 and the Advanced Degree cap is set at 20,000.

The regular H-1B cap advanced by 1000 filings in less than one month.  The U.S. Master's cap will likely expire within the next few months.

We will provide updates at www.bashyamspiro.com as they become available.
