Like tax and monsoon seasons, the undeniable pressures in the months leading up to the H-1B visa season are beginning to mount. Monday, April 2, 2018 is the earliest that the USCIS will accept new H-1B visa petitions for fiscal year 2019, which starts on October 1, 2018.

H-1B approvals were significantly lower in fiscal year (FY) 2018 according to USCIS data.
