As of June 1, 2012, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has received 55,600 petitions that count against the 65,000 H-1B Regular Cap, and 18,700 petitions that count against the 20,000 H-1B Master's Cap. USCIS will continue to accept new petitions until it has filled the H-1B Regular and Master’s Caps.

The pace of new H-1B submissions has accelerated as we predicted. For this reason, employers should prepare and file all new H-1B petitions as soon as possible. Any foreign national candidates who do not make it under the 2013 H-1B Cap may not be able to start work, or continue working, until October 1, 2013 – or later!

Please see full alert below for more information.
