After completing masters in USA, I got my H1 in Oct 2007 and I worked in USA till Sep 2008 [i.e 1 year] and returned to INDIA for family emergency. My H1 got expired in Sep 2010.
I am planning to apply for 2013 H1 -quota.
1) Does it come under Re-Issue/Reopen[out of quota] for my old H1, as I utilized only 1 year of given 6 years OR come under regular fresh H1 quota ? 2) Is there any rule that we need to apply for re-issue/re-open of H1 only within 6 years from H1 start period [ in my case from OCT 2007 to OCT 2013]..? ....(OR) we can apply re-issue even after 6 years Your response would be of great help for me . Thanks in Advance,
