How We Determine the Final Receipt Date
The final receipt date is the date when we received enough cap-subject petitions to reach the statutory limit of 66,000 H-2B worker visas for FY 2015.
What Happens After Reaching the Cap
USCIS will reject new H-2B petitions that:
- Request an employment start date before October 1, 2015; and
- Were received after March 26, 2015.
