My H1B petition was approved in 2008 and was valid from 2008-2011. When I went for stamping, I got white 221(g) slip for additional documents from the sponsor. We didn’t take the case forward then.
The queries I have are:
whether another employer can sponsor H1B now (in March 2015) as cap-exempt based on the earlier approved petition? I have the previous i-797 copy with me.
Is the 6 years validity rule applicable for approved petitions also? If yes, is it 6 years from the petition approval date (2008 in my case) or petition expiry date (2011 in my case)?
Thanks in advance!
