I found this site very informative with quick response. Thank you.
I came to US in 2006 Apr on L1 with company A and stayed on L1 until May 2009 and went back to India as my L1 extension decision was delayed and later rejected. While in US i got my H1 - consular processing done through a consultant in 2007 but never used it.
After returning to India in 2009, my company A applied used H1 from consultant to transfer under cap-exempt in Feb 2010 and i came back to US in July 2010 and am working here since then. Please help clarify my total stay in US against H1 limit of six years.
Since i stayed out of US for one year, does my 6 year stay on H1 get counted from Jul 2010.
Is my L1 stay for 3 yrs ( 2006 - 2009) also considered as part of 6 year stay?
How long can i stay on H1 in this scenario?
