Visa Status

Recommended Posts

I was sent to US from my previous organization in H1B. I stayed there between 2011 and 2014. While in US I applied for extension and my Visa was valid until April of 2016. Then I quit the organization and moved to another firm by 2015.

My question is if I apply for H1B now will I be eligible for out of cap or will my application still go into lottery? I heard from someone that up until 5 years from the date of expiry of my Visa my application will not go into lottery.

Please clarify. Thanks in advance for your help!
