Hi

I had approved H1b from Oct-2009 to Sep-2012, but I never travelled to USA.

Can I use same petition for the cap exempt and anpply for H1b transfer or extension now?

 

Thanks  for your help

Yes, new employer can file a cap exempt H1B petition. On approval with new employer's I797 you need to apply for a H1B visa and later travel.

Thanks Richi.

 

Could you plz also let me know the validity period of the same?

I mean since I have not travelled to USA and not used the stipulated 6 years,if I go for extension now, would I still be eligible to use the 6years period on the extended petition?

 

Thanks
