Reclaim H1B

Recommended Posts

Hi,


I am on a H1B and its valid till Aug 2016 from Employer A. I am planning on taking a break and going to India for 1 year. If I quit my current job and go to India for a 1 year:


 


1. Can another employer in India later on transfer my H1B under cap exempt after Aug 2016, as it would be expiring in Aug 2016?


 


2. Will they have to file a new one under the cap?


 


3. I have now used 3.5 years on my current H1B. If a new employer in India can transfer my H1B, would I be able to reclaim 2.5 remaining years or would I get 6 new full years as I am going to stay in India for an year?


 


Thanks in Advance for your help...
