TIME LIMIT FOR H1B RENEWAL AFTER H1B PETITION EXPIRY


#1

Hi,

I had H1B from Company-A and worked in US from 2013 to 2015 and came back India (Petition Got expired on Dec 2016). Now i am working with Company-B - joined Dec 2016.

Qtn here is :- Is there any hard rule that once the petition is expired (from above example/scenario). He/Candidate should apply H1B again under cap-exempt with in X year (is there any time limit to get the cap-exempt - In my case its been 3 years)?

6 years or up to the left over H1B time(which ever is less)
