H-1B Cap Met For 2018 Fiscal Year

https://www.uscis.gov/news/news-releases/uscis-reaches-fy-2018-h-1b-cap

As expected, USCIS reached the H-1B cap for fiscal year 2018 during the first week. 2018 visas become available in October 2017. H-1B applications can only be filed up to six months before so April is the earliest an applicant may apply. Those that have previously held H-1B status are exempt from the fiscal limitation.
