Updated H1-B Cap Count

USCIS updated its count of FY2012 cap-subject H-1B petitions and advanced degree cap-exempt petitions. As of November 2, 2011, approximately 50,800 H-1B cap-subject petitions were receipted. USCIS has receipted 20,000 H-1B petitions for aliens with advanced degrees.

The 50,800 is out of a cap of 65,000. The master cap is now closed at 20,000.

So we have roughly 14,000 H-1B visas left. Looks like we will use them up by the end of the year.
