H-1B CAP COUNT: 29,200

Rate this Entry

by Chris Musillo

The USCIS has just updated the H-1B Cap Count. The latest H-1B usage numbers are listed in the chart below. MU Law is also listing its estimated dates when the H-1B cap will be reached for each category. We will regularly update the projection.

H-1B Cap Count
Cap Type Available Received Updated MU Projection
Regular 65,000 29,500 4/27/2012 6/1/2012
US Masters 20,000 12,300 4/27/2012 5/20/2012


Many healthcare professions ordinarily qualify for H-1B status, includingPhysical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Therapists, and some Registered Nursing positions.

International workers who are working in the U.S. on an H-1B visa with another cap-subject employer are not subject to H-1B cap. These cases are commonly referred to as "H-1B transfer" cases and may be filed at any time throughout the year.

Employees that need a "cap-subject" H-1B include:

* International students working on an EAD card under an OPT or CPT program after having attended a U.S. school

* International employees working on a TN may need an H-1B filed for them in order for them to pursue a permanent residency (green card) case

* Prospective international employees in another visa status e.g. H-4, L-2, J-1, F-1

* H-1B workers with a cap exempt organization

* Prospective international employees currently living abroad

    I honestly wuldon't care if Romney supported making Spanish the official language of Massachussetts when he was in office (although I'm pleased to see he was actually good on immigration). The man believes in absolutely nothing except his own power. That is exactly the kind of guy we want leading the Republican party: a white, male, bland, technocrat in the mold of Nixon or Eisenhower who doesn't scare off socially moderate whites and doesn't motivate SWPLs to come to the polls. Romney isn't enslaved to the war and vodoo economics platform that the Republican party has been saddled with since Reagan.Also, I would love to see Obama get blasted by a white man in a debate. Obama was too smart for idiot McCain but he wuldon't be able to handle Romney.If Romeny didn't exist, we'd have to invent him.
