H1B’s ARE OUT FOR 2010

On December 22, 2009, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that, as of December 21, it had received enough qualifying H-1B petitions to reach the Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 cap. USCIS has also received more than 20,000 H-1B petitions on behalf of persons exempt from the cap under the advanced degree exemption. USCIS will reject cap-subject petitions for new H-1B specialty occupation workers seeking an employment start date in FY2010 that are received after December 21, 2009. USCIS will apply a computer-generated random selection process to all petitions that are subject to the cap and were received on December 21, 2009.
