Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I have a question regarding H1B.I worked on H1b in 2012 for 8 months and in 2013 for 4 months.So overall i have worked for 1 year on H1B in USA.After that i didnt utilize H1B and it got expired.Now iam coming to USA on H4 in 2022.So can i invoke my previous H1B which got expired with the company which i resigned long back?

Any option you can suggest .If yes,can you please let me know the process.

Thank You.

Thank You for the replies.

For transfer of H1b petition how much it will cost? I mean both normal and premium costs?

Nothing for you. The employer has to pay for the H1. Why do you even think you have to pay anything?

The only thing you are allowed to pay would be the cost for premium processing. A good employer would pay that as well, though, if they really want you quickly.
