    hello, I am new to this forum, and all of the visas proceedings, especially h2b visas, but may someone please tell what this message means?

    USCIS has received a sufficient number of petitions to reach the congressionally mandated
    H-2B for fiscal year (FY) 2017. March 13, 2017 was the final receipt date for new H-2B worker petitions requesting an employment start date before October 1, 2017.

    Does it mean that I cannot apply for h2b this year at all (meaning 2017)? Or does it mean I can apply still, but employment start has to be something after October 1st?

    Thank you for your answers.
