*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.
**Currently, there is insufficient data for USCIS to make a reasonable determination of the cut-off number needed to reach the FY’06 H-2B cap. The cut-off number will be posted when such information is available.
