USCIS Posts Updated H1-B Cap Usage and Begins Bi-Weekly Updates

USCIS has updated its website with the figures for H-1B usage for fiscal year 2007 as of May 19, 2006. Since it began accepting applications on April 1, USCIS has approved 6,934 H-1B beneficiaries with an additional 35,942 applications pending, for a total of 42,876 applications either granted or pending. In this same period, USCIS has approved 1,537 H-1B Advanced Degree beneficiaries with 3,821 applications pending, for a total of 5,358 applications either granted or pending. The respective caps are 58,200 for H-1B visas (with an additional 6,800 set aside for the H-1B1 program until October 1, 2006) and 20,000 for H-1B Advanced Degree visas. USCIS estimates the number of beneficiary applications needed to reach the cap, with an allowance for denials and revocations, at 61,000 for H-1Bs and 21,000 for H-1B Advanced Degrees.

USCIS also intends to try and provide updated cap usage figures twice a week until the cap is reached.  The following is the table of the count:
