Hello,

 

I have got my H1B approved in May 2006 which was valid from 10/01/2006 to 09/30/2009.  I went to the US in the month of Feb 2006 and started working there, I have changed my Employer in 2008 and got approved with the new validity from 09/17/2008 to 06/29/2011. I came back to India in August 2009 for my personal reasons and now I am interested in going back to work in the US, I wanted to know if my H1B is still valid and if I come under the cap exempt as i havent used it.

Please let me know what would be the process if i want to go back to US and work on H1B.

 

Thanks & Regards

You are cap exempt. Any employer can file a cap exempt H1B petition anytime and you would get the remainder of the max allowed stay of 6 years on H1B.
