H1B Visa One Year Left?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


I need to know my options to continue having a valid H1B status.

I had 3 H1B visas. First was approved on 10/2001 and the last was valid until 10/2007 but I left the company on 10/2006.

Do I have 1 year left or more because I spent 1 month between jobs? Maybe I have 1 year and 2 months?

I've been outside of U.S. for over a year. If a company wants to sponsor me, what would be my options? Use the H1B quota starting on April or not?

If I can just do a transfer of H1B (having a year left), could the company request another 6 year H1B on my behalf since I was over a year outside of the U.S.?
