Srini_krish Posted May 11, 2022 Report Share Posted May 11, 2022 Hello, I worked for a company in the US for 15 years on H1B. My Priority date is in 2011 and it got current in June 2021. My current H1B visa expired in March 2022. I was in the US till February this year but currently I'm not in the US. My current employer is not filing for the extension. So, I'm looking for a new employer who can file for my H1B extension. Since the Priority date is current for almost a year, am I eligible for normal H1B extensions (CAP exempt) with the new employer ? or do I have to go back in the H1B lottery after the PD is current for more than a year? In case, if there's a delay in finding an employer, how long do I have, to apply under the CAP exempt option? is there a cutoff date? Does the I140 Expire after the PD is current for a year.? Please advise. Quote Link to comment
