H1 General


Recommended Posts


I had H1 visa with Stamping from 2007 to 2010 October. But Unfortunately I did not travel during that Visa time period. I came to US with another company on L1 in Nov 2010. Can I reuse my old H1 with another new empoyer with out being counted against the H1 Quota... Your advice is appreciated

Generally, an individual is only counted against the numerical H1B cap if s/he is in the U.S. when the H1B petition and change of status take effect or s/he was issued a H1B visa by a U.S. consulate abroad. Otherwise, the chance of successfully arguing that the individual has been counted against the cap is diminished. Please schedule a consultation with a qualified immigration attorney to discuss the specific facts relating to your case and the options available to you.
