NEWS / USCIS Releases Preliminary Number Of FY 2009 H-1B Cap Filings


WASHINGTON Ė U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) today announced a preliminary number of nearly 163,000 H-1B petitions received during the filing period ending on April 7, 2008. More than 31,200 of those petitions were for the advanced degree exemption.



USCIS expects next week it will conduct the computer-generated random selection process, beginning with the selection of the 20,000 petitions under the advanced degree exemption. Those petitions not selected under the advanced degree exemption will join the random selection process for the regular 65,000 cap.

USCIS will reject, and return filing fees for all cap-subject petitions not randomly selected, unless found to be a duplicate. USCIS will handle duplicate filings in accordance with the interim final rule published on March 24, 2008 in the Federal Register.

USCIS will provide regular updates as the processing of FY 2009 H-1B cap cases continues.
