USCIS Updates H-2B Cap Count for FY 2010

January 29, 2010


USCIS has updated the H-2B cap count for FY2010. As of January 22, 2010, USCIS has received 40,644 H-2B petitions against the target of 47,000 out of which 36,962 petitions are approved and 3,682 are pending. USCIS has received 11,044 H-2B petitions for the second half of the fiscal year, also against a target of 47,000 of which 6,108 petitions are approved and 4,936 are pending.


USCIS is still accepting petitions for H-2B employment for the first half of the fiscal year, which ends on March 31, 2010, but case receipts are approaching the quota for this period. USCIS also continues to accept filings for H-2B employment for the second half of the fiscal year, which runs from April 1 to September 30, 2010.
