H-1B cap count as of September 9, 2011

USCIS announced last week that 32,200 H-1B filings have been approved or received by USCIS.  In addition, 16,700 of 20,000 available H-1B Master’s Exemption filings have also been approved or received by USCIS.  Once the 20,000 Master’s Exemption filings have been reached any future Master’s petitions will be counted against the Regular H-1B cap of 65,000.
