U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) announced today that it has received a sufficient number of H-1B petitions to reach the statutory cap for fiscal year (“FY”) 2014. USCIS also announced that it had received more than 20,000 H-1B petitions filed on behalf of persons exempt from the cap under the advanced degree exemption. As a result, USCIS will not accept any more new H-1B petitions subject to the FY 2014 cap or the advanced degree exemption.
