H-1B visas running out soon...

The US Citizenship and Immigration Service announced that as of December 15, 2009, 64,200 H-1B cap-subject petitions had been filed. This means that only 800 H1B visa petitions remain available for the 2010 fiscal year, which runs from October 1, 2009 through September 30, 2010. As they have stated before, USCIS will continue to accept both cap-subject petitions and advanced degree petitions until a sufficient number of H-1B petitions have been received to reach the statutory limits, taking into account the fact that some of these petitions may be denied, revoked, or withdrawn.

Get your petitions in soon, or you'll have to wait until next year!
