20,000 H-1B visas are available to those individuals possessing at least a master's degree (or higher) from a U.S. college or university. USCIS announced today that a total of 12,989 cases qualifying for these H-1B visas were received on April 2nd and 3rd. Therefore, USCIS has affirmatively declared that the cap on these U.S. master's degree H-1B cases remains open, and employers may continue to file petitions fitting this criteria until the 20,000 cap is reached.

Please see this Mintz Levin Advisory for details on the available H -1B cases remaining open.
