Help on query regarding H1B Lottery exemption

Recommended Posts

Is 6 years total a person get for H1B+ L1B visa in USA ( without green card). For example, If a person was in US for close to 5 years & 9 months.
In this tenure, the initial time was on L1B Visa for 3.5 years and the later 2.5 years on H1B Visa. 
Since, he was on H1B Visa for only 2.5 years, does he qualify for Lottery Exemption?
In such case, does he need to apply for petition renewal/ extension or has the process changed?
Please advise

The combined time on L1 and H1 is 6 years.

In your case, you are not cap exempt. You have to stay abroad for at least a year before a new H1 can be filed for you in the quota.
