Rule to be employed for min 1 yr, for initiating H1B visa process

Hi All,

Is there a rule that we need to employed for atleast one year with current employer for initiating H1B visa process?

ex: i recently joined a company, and i m looking for a H1B visa. since this year quota is already filled. Company can initiate only after April 2013. but since i joined the company in November, 2012. I wont be completing 1 year by April, 2013. Is this fine? Can my company initiate a H1B visa process in April, 2013? Is there no limit/restriction/rule on the amount of time spent in the company?

Any information would be of great help.

Thanks In Advance.



There is no such rule.
