View Full Version : Expired H1 B - Renewal/Application

02-02-2011, 01:01 AM
I held an H1 B Visa from 2005 to 2008. I worked in the US from for 1 year from 2006 to 2007. I had to return to my home country and my visa expired in 2008. I have been out of US for more than a year and now I am on H4 status (not employed currently) and I would like to know the below:

1. Am I eligible to renew my previous H1 visa. Will my visa petition be considered as an extension of my previous H1 B?
2. Will my application fall under the cap exempt or will I be subject to cap limit
3. If the above fail, what other options do I have?

Pls guide.
