Sub: Want to know whether I am eligible for cap exempt 2016/2017.

I, Sanjay, had H1B visa in Oct 2007 and had travelled to US and was there for a period of 5 months (i.e. From 15th Feb 2008 to 9th Aug 2008). My visa expiry date was 29th Sep 2010. Am I eligible for cap exempt 2016 or 2017. Please guide me.

Usually USCIS has a 6 year limit on filing cap-exempt petition. So that would have expired in 2014.

However, recently folks have reported success in filing cap-exempt petition for more than 6 year old applications. So you can also try your luck by talking to a prospective employer and their attorney.
