FY 2013 H-1Bs Going, Going, Gone
On June 11, 2012, USCIS received a sufficient number of petitions to reach the cap for FY 2013. On June 7, 2012, USCIS also received more
than 20,000 H-1B petitions on behalf of persons exempt from the cap under the advanced degree exemption. USCIS will reject petitions subject to the
cap going forward.
USCIS continues to accept petitions exempted from the cap.
