The H-2B cap meant for the first half of the fiscal year 2018 as mandated by the Congress has been reached by US Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Dec. 15th, 2017, was the last date for receiving fresh H-2B worker applications containing the request for an employment commencement date earlier to April 1, 2018. USCIS is now authorized to reject H-2B applications which are received after this date which seek an employment commencement date earlier to April 1, 2018.

USCIS will continue accepting H-2B applications, which stand exempted from the cap mandated by the Congress. The categories included are such applications:

H-2 B workers in the USA at present who seek extension of their stay and change the terms of their employment/employers;

Fish roe processors/technicians, and all supervisors involved in fish roe processing; and,

Workers who undertake labor work/services in the Northern Mariana Islands /Guam from Nov. 28, 2009, to Dec. 31, 2019.

Businesses located in the USA make use of the H2B Program for employing overseas workers to do non-agricultural jobs of temporary nature. At present, Congress has limited the H-2B cap to be 66,000 per fiscal year. 33,000 workers who start employment from October 1 - March 31 and 33,000 for workers who start employment from April 1 - September 30 are eligible for it.
