Break from h1b job

Recommended Posts


I am not sure if this question was asked before. I am on H1b from last 10 years. My I140 is approved. Current I797A is valid till  Dec 2022, Visa Stamp on Passport is valid till Dec2021. Planning to quit the job and go back to my home country for 6 months or so.

If I can find an H1b job after 6 months, will the employer be able to apply for cap exempt H1b or do I have to go through lottery process again?

Also if the employer is able to apply for H1b, do I need to go for stamping again or can I use the existing valid stamp and enter US?
