On November 23, 2011, the USCIS announced that the H-1B General Cap of 65,000 was reached on the previous day. The agency will not accept any new “cap-subject” H-1B filings until April 1, 2012.
The general H-1B cap is set annually at 65,000 with an advance degree cap of 20,000 for professionals who have a Master’s degree or higher from a U.S. university. Detailed information is available on USCIS’ H-1B Fiscal Year 2012 Cap Season web page.
