As of November 13, 2009, approximately 55,600 H-1B cap-subject petitions had been filed. With the 20,000 H-1Bs for aliens with advanced US degrees already exhausted and the 6,800 H-1Bs set aside for Chileans and Singaporeans, there appears to be only approximately 2,600 H-1Bs available for the current fiscal year which began on October 1, 2009.
