According to the USCIS, as of November 20, 2009, 56,900 H-1B cap cases were received by the agency for FY-2010. The 20,000 “master cap” has been exhausted for some time. Therefore all cap-subject H-1B petitions received by the USCIS will be applied toward the general cap. Will the FY-2010 cap be exhausted before calendar year 2010 begins? Wait and see.
