Here is my situation.. I had H1B and worked in US for 1.5yrs. I returned to india in June 2012 thinking I would travel back to US and file an extention before my VISA expires. As per plan I got my VISA stamped in Sept 2012, but I could NOT travel back to US and my VISA got expired on Oct 25th 2012. Now I'm planning to try H1B..request your ans for below ques... 1) Am I eligible for cap exempt? 2) If yes, can I file H1B under cap exempt from a new employer? I have all the previous petition docs. 3) is there a specific time period to file H1B under cap exempt? Pls help Thanks in Advance.
