NewsFlash! H1B Cap Reached for FY 2019

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that the H1B cap limit for fiscal year 2019 (FY19) has been reached. This applies to both the 65,000 regular H1B cap limit as well as the 20,000 advanced degree (masters) cap exemptions.

As the H1B case filings exceed the allowed limits, the USCIS will conduct a random lottery to select cases for processing. The USCIS has not yet revealed the number of cases filed for FY19. Stay tuned to MurthyDotCom and subscribe to the MurthyBulletin for future updates.
