USCIS Reached the H-1B Visa Cap for FY2019

USCIS Reached the H-1B Visa Cap for FY2019

As of April 6, 2018, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services reached the 65,000 visa H-1B petitions mandated by Congress for FY2019. USCIS also received enough H-1B petitions to meet the master's cap visa exemption of 20,000. All unselected petitions will be returned along with the filing fees for those petitions.

What Can I Do Now that the Cap has Been Reached?

USCIS is still accepting and processing petitions that are exempt from the cap in other ways.
