My H1B petition was approved from 1st oct 2006, but I traveled on that H1 for 9 months till 1st Mar 2008. After that I traveled multiple time to US on L1 visa. Never been out of US for more than 1 year since June 2007. Can I renew my old H1 petition which is expired? In total till today I stayed in US for 51 months.
My questions are:
Am I eligible for cap-exempt?
If I find an employer, can processing for H1B start right away or does it have anything to do with the regular applications?
