Renewal/Transfer of H1B

Recommended Posts

My H1B expired on June 2010 and went back to India and came to US on July 2011 on H4.

I utilized my previous H1 only for 6 months. Can I now transfer previous H1B to another company and start working right away OR Do I need to go for new H1 and wait till Oct 2011 to Work.

Please help!!!!!

Generally, one does not have to be counted against the numerical cap if he/she has been counted against the cap in the past six years and still has time left in the 6 year limitation. Please note that not all “new H1b petition†is a cap case. If an H1b petition is being filed for a new job, the petition must indicate that it is “new employment.†This does not automatically subject the petition to the cap.
