Making the H-1B Visa Quota - Why the Early Cut-off?

Why Is There an Early Cut-off for H-1B Visas?

H-1B visas are limited to 65,000 per year. However, certain cases are exempt from the cap. This numerical limit is further reduced by free trade agreements that specifically allocate 6,800 H-1B visas for nationals of Singapore and Chile - making only 58,200 visas available in the standard H-1B pool.
