So I am looking to file an H1-B application. I have a company that will sponsor, but I would need to start working for them 6 months from now in March 2014.
As I have understood, the cap for the number of H1-B applications was reached already this April. So my question is: is it possible for me to file an H1 application right now, and be able to start working 6 months from now (March 2014)? Or does the fact that the cap has been reached make it impossible for me to get a approved H1 until at the earliest October of next year?
Basically: can I get an approved H1 and start working before October 2014, or is that impossible as of now?
