I read conflicting statements about my case. My visa is supposed to start the 1st of October 2016 and for personal reasons I have to go back in my home country for a few months. I was wondering if I could leave the US before October 1st and then apply under cap-exempt later ( either the same company or another one ).
Basically, what are the requirements to stay under the cap-exempt with my H1B ? Can I leave before the 1st of October or should I leave after ?
