H1B visa duration


Recommended Posts

Hi Friends. have below query on my H1 status-

  1. On L1B in US from June 2010 to September 2013
  2. In India from Oct 2013 to March 2015 (outside of US for one year though H1B-Cap filed on April 2014- within six months from September 2013)
  3. On H1B in US from March 2015 to till date (stamped till September 2017)

Does it reset my H1B stay for a complete 6 years ? Though my company attorney have already confirmed with a big NO as Cap was filed just after 6 months of departing from US.


Got a strange reply from a private law firm:

In April 2017 I can file for a fresh H1B cap reason being I was out from Oct 2013 to March 2015 (> a year) while being on last 6 years visa duration !! true ?


Appreciate your thoughts.
