I got my first fresh H1B in the year 2013 with the help of Employer “A” in India and travelled to the USA in May 2014 for two months. I came back to India and worked for the same employer “A” for 5 months and then travelled to the USA again in January 2015. I stayed in the USA till June 2019 and worked for the same employer “A”. My total duration with employer “A” was 4 years and 5 months in USA. I then quit the job with employer “A” while in the USA and came back to India to work for employer “B”. Employer “A” has WITHDRAWN the H1B since I am no longer working with them and left them. Never initiated the Green Card process. In this case,
- Can a new employer “C” based out of the USA use my existing H1B and transfer it, given that it is WITHDRAWN by employer “A” ?
- Do I fall under cap-exempt or have to go with the new lottery process next year?
