Change of Status back to H1b after 3 years and cap exemption

Recommended Posts

I was on H1b visa from September 2008 to December 2016 (more than 8 years) and have I140 approved in 2013. In Jan 2017, i changed to G-4 visa and work with the international organization. The current assignment will end in few months ith the International organization. I want to understand my options.


- Can a new employer file for a H1b visa under cap exempt without going through the lottery as i have a I140 approved


- Upon approval of H1B (change of status from G4 to H1b), do i have to go out of country for the visa stamping ?


- Can i continue to work in G4 till the approval of the h1b.


- Incase, H1b is not approved, can i continue working in G4 visa with the international organization.


- Can some other employer file employment based green card for me while working in G4
