H1B Cap Exempt for Re-filing


Recommended Posts


I need some help in understanding the Cap exempt for previous H1B holders. My cousin's H1B renewal was denied when he went for stamping in 2010. He did not re-apply for a new H1B after that. If he were to apply for this year's quota, will he be in Cap Exempt. He does not have a master's degree though. Any help is sincerely appreciated. Let me know if more information is needed.

Thank you Hema for the clarification.

Not many consultancies are coming forward to file H1B without a project confirmation.

And with new filing, you cannot get a client who agrees to hire someone for a project whose H1B starts from Sept of this year.

Does H1B filing through the lottery process require a client letter or project confirmation documents for the employer.
