H1B Cap (140 approved 10 years back, out of country)


Recommended Posts


I moved out of the US 9 years back and had an approved 140 at that time. Should I explore opportunities in the US again, I am keen to understand a couple of things:

  • Will I fall under the cap for H1B? Based on what I am reading online, I am of the belief that I would not
  • Should I apply for green card sometime in the future, and say the priority date has passed, will I still be able to use the date (and not wait) or is the expectation that the filing has to be done as and when it is current? I am aware that I will have to go through the process starting from labor again

I would really appreciate your inputs on the above.
