Is the Expired H1B petition valid for exempt?


My H1B petition is approved in 2008 and visa stamping is done. I haven’t travelled to US during these 6 years as i was on other countries. My Visa expired in 2011. Am i eligible for exempt?

No you are not eligible. You should have activated the visa once at least by the end of the 6th year.

This is my understanding, please consult an attorney once. Thanks.
