H-1B count now at 44,000

USCIS has released the latest count of FY 2010 H-1B petition filings.

According to the CIS website

USCIS has received approximately 44,000 H-1B petitions counting toward the Congressionally-mandated 65,000 cap. The agency continues to accept petitions subject to the general cap.

Additionally, the agency has received approximately 20,000 petitions for aliens with advanced degrees; however, we continue to accept advanced degree petitions since experience has shown that not all petitions received are approvable.

For cases filed for premium processing during the initial five-day filing window, the 15-day premium processing period began April 7.

USCIS will provide regular updates on the processing of FY2010 H-1B petitions. The updates can be found on the USCIS’ Web site at www.uscis.gov/h-1b_count.
