I was at USA last from 2004 till Oct 2009. I got another H1B in Aug 20013, which was valid from Oct 2013 till Sep 2015. But I never initiated the visa stamping since went to another country. Now I am trying to find out if I am eligible for Out of Cap H1B extension and if yes till how long can I do the same. If I am eligible for how many years I get approval to stay.
Based on your H-1 approved from Oct’13 - Sep’15, you are eligible for cap-exempt petition. When you applied in 2013, did you go through the cap or did you use 2004 petition as reference for cap-exempt petition?
It was a fresh petition got through lottery only in 2013. Can you share any link in USCIS or somewhere to take with my immigration team
I don’t have a link to share. There are experiences shared by others who have got cap-exempt petition this way.
