USCIS Updates H-1B Cap Figures for Fiscal Year 2007

USCIS has updated its website with the figures for H-1B usage for fiscal year 2007 as of April 3, 2006. Since it began accepting applications on April 1, 2006, USCIS has approved 76 H-1B beneficiaries and 9 H-1B Advanced Degree beneficiaries. The respective caps are 58,200 for H-1B visas (with an additional 6,800 set aside for the H-1B1 program until October 1, 2006) and 20,000 for H-1B Advanced Degree visas. USCIS estimates the number of beneficiary applications needed to reach the cap, with an allowance for denials and revocations, at 61,000 for H-1Bs and 21,000 for H-1B Advanced Degrees. Periodic updates on new usage counts are available through AILA InfoNet at document #06041360: http://uscis.gov/graphics/services/tempbenefits/cap.htm.
