Hello, I first got my H1B approved in 2006 (2007 Quota) and lived in USA from Jan 2007 to Nov 2012. Completed 6 years of H1B and stayed outside USA for 1 year and 4 months. I have a couple of questions -

 

1) If I am applying in April for a fresh H1B for new 6 years term, will I fall under H1B cap for 2015 or since I already counted once under H1B Cap in 2006, will I be exempted from the Cap.

 

2) if I am exempted from the cap, can I initiate the  H1B process anytime during the year and not necessarily file by 1st week of April considering high volume of applications.

 

Please advise on the above.
