USCIS has received a sufficient number of petitions to reach the congressionally mandated H-2B cap for the first half of Fiscal Year 2014 (33,000 workers). The final receipt date for new H-2B worker petitions requesting an employment start date before April 1, 2014 is March 14, 2014. This means that USCIS will reject new H-2B petitions that request an employment start date before April 1, 2014 and were received after March 14, 2014. USCIS will continue to accept H-2B petitions that are exempt from the congressionally mandated cap.
