USCIS News Release: USCIS Reaches FY 2018 Cap

USCIS News Release

USCIS Reaches FY 2018 H-1B Cap

Release Date: April 7, 2017

On Friday, USCIS reached the FY 2018 Cap for both the regular cab-subject H-1B petitions and the U.S. master's cap. For FY 2018, congress has mandated 65,000 H-1B visas for the regular cap and 20,000 for the master's cap. All rejected petitions will be returned with the filing fee. This means if you did not get your H-1B cap-subject petition in last week, do not bother sending it to USCIS now since they are no longer accepting applications.
