H1B Validity to come back to US

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Can someone please suggest.

My Situation:

I have 1 year 4 months left from my 6 years duration.

Now due to family issues, I need to go back to my home country but I will come back after 2 or 3 years. I

My Questions:

1.       What will happen to my H1?

2.       Can I come back to US with same H1?

3.       Do I need to have same employer to come back to US?

4.       In India, if I work for a different employer (like Infosys or TCS) can they do H1 transfer while I am in India?

5.       If my current employer revoked my current H1 as soon as I quit. Can different employer use Cap exempt or Do I need to apply for fresh H1?

6.       What are the different ways to come back to US without going through the lottery system again?

7.     How long can I be in the outside USA and apply for H1 with remaining left 1 year 4 months of duration ? is there time limit?


Thanks in advance.
