The USCIS has announced that it has received a sufficient number of H-1B petitions to reach the statutory cap for FY 2011.  Cap-exempt organizations and eligible beneficiaries who are or have already in H-1B status may still file or have petitions filed on their behalf.  Others will need to wait until at least April 1, 2011 to file petitions that will be subject to the FY 2012 cap with employment to begin on or after October 1, 2011.
