  1. #1
    Can anyone tell me if the H-1B visa quota is almost up? Does the 65,000 amount re start on the 1st Jan?

    The H-1B numbers are doled out per fiscal year, which is different from the calendar year. The fiscal year begins on October 1 and ends on September 31.


    It is likely that the H-1B cap will be reached around January/February. This only applies to new H-1Bs, not to extensions or changes of employers.

    BCIS will announce when the available H-1Bs have been used up.

    In 1999, as we got close to the cap, H-1B processing slowed down dramatically, then stopped, as INS kept having to count how many H-1Bs had been issued. That was before premium processing, so I don't know how it will go this year.
