Q: So between April 6 and October 1, USCIS does not take any more applications?
A: Generally not. If the petition is subject to the H-1B cap, it must wait until the next calendar year to be filed. Unless, of course, the application meets one of the exceptions, e.g., Institutions of Higher Education, or nonprofits, or Government research organizations.
