I needed some guidance. I am currently looking at employers for this years H-1b lottery. I am on a cap-exempt H-1b. I have travel plans to India in November. I have a few questions listed below:
- On an average, what is the processing time once H-1 gets picked up ?
- As far as the employer approves, can I travel to India in November from a legal standpoint ? I am assuming I will have to get an appointment for H-1b stamping before returning.
- My H-1 b was picked up in the lottery last year but got denied due to a delay in sending the required documents: my original lawyer unfortunately passed away and there was a delay in obtaining documents. Does a H-1b denial affect future applications?
Has anyone been in this situation prior ?
Thank you for the help!
