H-1B Cap Reached for Fiscal Year 2007

USCIS announced on June 1, 2006, that it had received sufficient H-1B petitions to fulfill the fiscal 2007 quota as of May 26, 2006. Any cap-subject petitions received after that date will be returned. Petitions received on that date will be subject to a "random selection process."

This is the earliest that the H-1B quota has ever been reached: less than two months after the agency started accepting petitions and more than four months before the fiscal year even begins. USCIS had last updated its count on May 25, 2006. As of the morning of June 1, it was still data-entering filings received on May 26.
