News Flash  – USCIS Announces Continued Receipt of H-1B Visa Petitions

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that it will continue to accept H-1B applications  until the Fiscal Year 2010 (FY 2010) cap of 65,000 petitions is reached. USCIS stated it will monitor the number of H-1B petitions received for both the 65,000 regular cap and the 20,000 U.S. master’s degree or higher educational exemption cap.  USCIS also stated that it reserves the right to randomly select petitions in a lottery to reach the cap, although USCIS previously stated that it would utilize the random lottery only in the first five days of the filing period.  See the USCIS press release issued today for the full report: www.uscis.gov.
