November 15, 2019, was the final receipt date for new cap-subject H2B petitions seeking an employment start date before April 1, 2020. Thus, the USCIS will reject all H2B petitions seeking an employment start date before April 1, 2020, received after November 15, 2019. The USCIS does, however, continue to accept H2B petitions that are exempt from the H2B cap.
