According to the USCIS, as of June 1, 2012 55,600 of the 65,000 Regular Cap H-1B Visa petitions have been used.  After the USCIS has accepted 65,000 H-1B Visas, they will not accept anymore Regular Cap cases until April 1, 2013 which would have October 1, 2013 begin dates. We anticipate all of the 2013 Regular Cap H-1B visa petitions will be used up within the next 1-2 weeks.
