H1-B Approved but never travelled.


Recommended Posts

Hi Team,

I got H1-B petition approved in 2016 through my previous employer.  But I never travelled on H1-B to USA through the old company.

The original I-797 petition is with my previous employer, but I have a copy of the petition.


I also have a B1/B2 visa and have travelled on this visa.


Please help with the following queries:

1. Is it necessary for me to have the original H1-B petition with me (which I may not get from my previous employer) ?

If yes, can I apply for duplicate?

2. Am I eligible for cap-exempt H1-B ?

3. Will having a B1/B2 visa help me in any way to activate my approved previous H1-B?
