Hi,

We left US on June 30, 2013 after completing 6 years in US. I would like to apply for new H1 for the year 2014 quota. But, I heard that, I have to complete one year even before applying for new H1. Is that true? or Am I eligible for 2014? Please confirm.

 

Appreciate your time.

 

 

Thanks

Yes, you would need to be outside US for 365 days before a cap subject H1B petition could be filed. In your case a H1B petition could be filed on July 1st 2014 if quota is still open or else April 2015.
