My H1B was approved in 2008 but I never used it (did not travel to the US). I traveled to the US in 2012 on F1 and filed for a fresh H1B in 2015 which got denied after RFE. As per my knowledge, my 2008 visa cannot be used again as it has been more than 6 years since its approval. Recently I heard from someone that the 6 years rule is no longer applicable and that I can still file for an amendment for the 2008 approved H1B. Is this information correct or its all a rumor?
Thank you all!
