H1B non cap


Recommended Posts

I was on H1B earlier in US and used only 3.5 years till 2007. I then left to India and came back this year on non cap H1. I was not counted against the cap and didn't go through the lottery. I got H1 validity for 1 year. Now I am at a point of H1 extension and I was told by my HR that as I was outside US for more than 1 year my H1 is again valid for 6 more years even though I came back on cap exempt H1. I was under the impression that my H1 is valid for 1.5 years more (as I have already used 3.5 years previously and now 1 year, so 1.5 still left.


Can someone please confirm this? Appreciate your response
