H1B Visa approval -2011


I have unused and unstamped H1B petition that was filed in year 2011. This petition got expired on 12-Feb-2013. Can I use this petition for cap exemption now? If yes, what are the next steps? I don’t have contacts with the employer who originally filed petition in 2010. Request you to provide answer ASAP.

Thank you,



Find a new employer who can file your h1b and file it under non-quota by keeping a copy of your existing approval. You dont need your previously H1 filed employer at all.
