H-1B Count: 58,700
The latest USCIS update says that 58,700 of the 65,000 regular H-1B numbers were used as of January 7, 2011. The demand for H-1B numbers historically has spiked as the H-1B number grows closer to 65,000. MU predicts that the H-1B cap will be reached by the end of the month. MU clients strongly are urged immediately to initiate and file any regular cap-subject H-1B cases.
