H1B Amendment(Loc Change) + Extension RFE


Recommended Posts

I received an RFE for my H1B amendment with reason stating that the following reason


"The record shows the beneficiary has reached the six-year limit in H-1B nonimmigrant status based on period from October 9,2007 to July 12, 2016, during which he was authorized H-1B or L-1 status. USCIS records indicate beneficiary arrived in US on October 9, 2007 and was admitted in the status as L-1 worked. The total period of stay for H or L status may not exceed 6 years. According to our records, adjusting for the available recapture time spent outside the US, the beneficiary's status end date was July 11, 2016.


This places the beneficiary out of status and ineligible for extension. Time spent outside the United States while in valid status can be recaptured, provide clear and convincing proof that time was spent outside the US"



Here is a detailed list of dates on which I was in the United States


From                        To                      Country                            Associated Visa

As indicated above, I have not been in the country between May-2010 and Feb-2013. I am assuming the CAP to be reset ?   Could someone please explain if my understanding is wrong here ?
