    H1B reuse remainder period

    Finally they reviewed my case after I quoted text from the above memo and agreed that I am eligible for more than 3 years on H1B. They are asking me to enter the US on approved petition and then they will file for extension.

    H1B reuse remainder period

    @pontevecchio Actually the immigration attorney is outsourced, do you have any memo/document from USCIS that I can quote to them. All the official document from USCIS only mention recapture of time during H1B validity, I did not find any document that mentions that I can reuse the time when I was not on H1B.

    H1B reuse remainder period

    I was on H1B from April 2014 till Mar 2017. From Mar 2017 till today I am in India. Now my employer is ready to file H1B petition to reuse my remainder time. The problem here is they are saying that I can stay only till Apr 2020 ( 6 year max from April 2014) but shouldn't it be for period (6 years - period from April 2014 to Mar 2017) which is around 3 years as I only stayed in US for 3 years.

    Incorrect time outside USA in I-129 petition (approved)

    Thank you for your reply. My Visa appointment is after 1 month and 1 week, so I have got some time if an amendment needs to be filed. I am not sure how they got this wrong when I provided my entire travel history. Do you think they should file a new H1B petition or an amendment needs to be done?
  5. Guys I left my employer in USA in Mar'17 due to a family emergency. They are ready to hire me again. I was in H1B for only 3 years when I worked for them so still have cap exempt H1B 3 years left. The immigration attorney while filing the petition asked me the time outside USA which I thought was being asked for the duration when I worked for them. I gave them my I-94 travel dates and told them I was outside USA 88 days (thinking they already know that I am not in USA from Mar'17). I also mentioned that in USA for only 8xx days. Now they filed H1B petition mentioning that I am working with them from Apr 2014 till present and petition was approved till Apr 2020 + 88 days. Actually it should have been for 2 years and 8 months more. I hope it has not been confusing so far. I just informed them about the mistake, do they now need to file a new I-129 petition or amend the existing one (waiting for their reply). I have already scheduled the consulate appointment for Visa, will I be able to enter the USA (assuming I get the Visa) on the existing I-129 while it is being amended (or a new one is being filed).
