I have a previosuly approved H1B petition(expired on July 2012) from one of my ex-employer but I have never travelled to US on H1 before or availed that petition. I have this petition number but do not have the petition papers as my ex-employer had misplaced it. I have an official email from my ex-employer which says that it belongs to me. With this information can I file for my H1B now under cap exempt quota & start working immediately without waiting till April 2013 for the regular cap to open.
Awaiting your response,
