  I got H1B visa stamped through company A on Oct-2012 and also expired Sep-2013.I never traveled USA using H1B visa. Now I am working company B.

Is company B can apply H1B for me through cap exempt ?  If yes,Is I need to apply before Oct-2018?



Yes, your case is CAP exempt. This case happened to one of my friends. CAP exempt can be filed anytime. 6 years count is only for your total stay in US on H1 and it does not need to be filed within 6 years from your first stamping. My first H1 visa stamped in 2007 and I was able to file again on CAP exempt in 2015.
