H1B out of cap processing

Recommended Posts

I worked in H1B from 2015 to 2017 . Due to personal reasons I had to travel back to India in 2017 and so my H1 was withdrawn by my employer as I could not resume back to work . In 2018 I was back to USA in H4 visa(dependent of my husband who holds a H1B visa). My question is if an employer is ready to sponsor my H1 by processing out of cap can I start working with a receipt notice  or should I wait until the approval. My previous H1 which was withdrawn was valid till Sep 2019 .

You are entitled to 6 years minus existing H1 time which you say is 3 years. You cannot start on application and will have to wait for the petition with COS to be approved. Look up whether PP is possible.

 The previous answer is wrong.

You are cap-exempt.

The old employer was required by law to inform USCIS that you no longer work there. That's completely irrelevant for you.

If you have not used the full 6 years you can get the remainder cap-exempt.

I guess your old withdrawn H1B is gone. I guess you need to go into lottery.

Wrong. Revocation of the old H1 is completely irrelevant.

Hi,

My H1B was approved on December 7th 2018 and petition end date was August 31st 2019. Stamping was not done. I am in India.

 Can you please explain me whether i am eligible for H1B Cap exempt process ?

How about creating your own post and not hijacking somebody else's?

If you have not worked for the H1 employer with the H1 you are not cap-exempt. A new employer can file an H1 for you April 2020 for a start date of Oct. 2020.

Hi Joef,

Sorry.

I started a new thread. Thanks for your reply.

The second paragraph in my previous answer answers your question.
