Question on Opening Old H1B Urgent..


Recommended Posts


My H1 B was approved in 2005 under Masters Quota.I worked in U.S from Sep 2005 till May 2009,while my H1B was valid till Aug2010.

In May2009,I went back to India and stayed for 2yrs.I came back to U.S in May 2011 on L1 B visa.I have following two questions.

1. As I stayed outside the country for more than a year,am I eligible to file for new H1B under the 2012 Quota and if approved will i be eligible for complete 6yrs?

2. If the current quota of 65000 visa gets exhausted in next 1 or 2 months,will I be able to transfer my Old H1B to any other employer and start working immediately
