USCIS announced that 2013 annual H-1B non-immigrant short-term work visas have been filled to capacity; and the receiving deadline was June 11. Therefore, the USCIS no longer accepts the new application, but still accepts the other H-1B case.

In addition, H-1B extension of the visa validity period, change of the current job, change of employer, are not subject to the limitations of the closing date.
