Will I come under H1B CAP Exempt after working for 4 years?


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I worked in USA during below dates. Please advice on CAP Exempt scenario for me?

L1B Visa: Company A
March 2010 - February 2013 (Actual Approval Dates)    &           June 2010 - December 2011 (Actual Working Dates)         - Total 1.5 Years on L1B

Moved to H1B from L1B:

H1B Company B (1st time H1B) - Revoked in Oct 2013, after I left this.
November 2011 - November 2014 (Actual Approval Dates)  &  January 2012 - September 2013 (Actual Working Dates)     - 1.9 Years on 1st H1B   

Moved back to my home country in September 2013.

H1B Company C (2nd time H1B) - Revoked in June 2015, after I left this.
November 2014 - June 2016 (Actual Approval Dates)    &    November 2014 - May 2015 (Actual Working Dates)                  - 7 Months on 2nd H1B

Moved back to my home country in June 2015.

1) Will I come under CAP Exempt, if my new employer wants to file a new H1B?

2) Do I have to count my L1B stay of 1.5 years as well (as part of my CAP of 6 years), because my first H1B actually approved in November 2011.

3) Will I get CAP Exempt of 2 years (L1B+H1B=4 years) or 3.5 Years (Only H1B=2.5 years)?

Thank you all for looking into it.
