H1 B Cancellation and later reinstating


Recommended Posts

I have been on H1 B and employed since Oct 2015. Due to certain circumstances I'm thinking of cancelling my H1 B status now and thinking on getting back to H4 visa status temporarily.


Couple of months later can I reinstate H1 B work visa status? If so - 


1. Will I be subject to the H1 B cap / lottery selection again?

2. How long to I have to be outside USA in order to reinstate H1 B again?

3. What is the process of reinstating the H1 B visa?

4. Would the pending time from my previous H1 B status continue? Or would a fresh set of 6 years apply?


Please help me with your responses. I'm torn between wanting to cancel H1 and sustaining it.
