I stayed in L1B visa till July 2013 in US for exactly 4 years and 4 months and I travelled back to India on July end as my third L1B extension has been denied. From then I am outside US till now (for more than 1 year). In this April 2014, my employer filed a new H1B CAP petition which also got approved few weeks back for 1 year as I was not able to show contract for entire 3 years.
Now, when I travel to US on H1B in this October, would I be able to apply extension by next year to utilize the fresh 6 years as I was out of country for 365 days or the initial 4 years and 4 months will still be considered and I can use only remaining 1 year and 8 months? I checked with my employer immigrations and they are confirming as the beneficiary stayed outside US for 365 days the clock will reset and I can utilize fresh 6 years. Please confirm.
