*6,800 are set aside for the H-1B1 program under terms of the U.S.-Chile and U.S.-Singapore Free Trade Agreements and to the extent unused can first be made available for general use on October 1, 2006, the start of FY 2007. **Filings will be rejected the day after the cutoff date for new filings. The cutoff date will be whenever sufficient petitions and associated worker applications have been received to satisfy the cap of 33,000 visas minus first-time beneficiaries changing status. USCIS has estimated that 62% of approved beneficiaries will actually result in H-2B visas issued by Department of State. Accordingly, USCIS will cutoff the first half cap at 52,000.

As per the above chart recently released by the USCIS, the cap for H1B advance degree exemption (people who earns master or higher degree in the US) is still available.  Qualified readers intentding to apply should act quickly.
