H-1B Cap Reached for FY2019!

Today, USCIS announced that both the 65,000 regular cap and the 20,000 advanced degree cap have been reached for this year's H-1B filing.  The agency will no longer accept any more H-1B filings.  A visa lottery will be held to select cases for further processing.  Employers may continue to submit other cap-exempt H-1B petitions (e.g., for extensions / amendments.)
