I am currently staying in the United States on H4 visa.
I have previously worked in the US on L1 visa (Sep 2006 - Aug 2007) and H1 visa (Nov 2007-March 2009).
I went back to India in March 2009 and have returmed to the US in March 2012 and since then I am on H4 visa.
My question is :
1)Since I held an H1 before which I used only for 1.5 years. Would I fall under H1B quota ?or would my case be considered quota exempt ?
- Can a new employer use my old H1 and transfer it ? and would that fall under quota ?
Please let me know your thoughts .
Thanks in advance.
