View Full Version : H1B visa recapture - After 6 years!!!

04-21-2014, 12:49 AM
Hi Gurus,

I live in US last 9 years and with the help of I -140 from my previous employer I have H1B visa till May 2016. If I go India for a year and come back will that 12 months can be recaptured and my H1 Visa validity will be valid till May 2017.

In other words I would like to check if I work 12 months outside of US can that period (1 year) be recaptured. I am not sure whether this would be possible even after 6 years (After 6 years of H1B is done and work here with H1B extension)

Could you please let me know. Thanks in Advance
