I would like to know the process of extending/reapplying for H1-B visa. I was holding H1-B visa (AUG 2009-JUL 2011) and I am having full set of petition document along with I-797B form with me. My H-1B got expired on 20 JUL 2011. It would be nice if you can answer the below queries.
(1) Since my H1-B expired in July 2011, can I apply for extension?
(2) I came back to india in Mar 2011 and its been more than 1 year outside of US. So, will I need to apply for a fresh one?
(3) One of the employer (not my current employer) is saying that, since I hold I-797B form with me, I need not go through the CAP and can reapply anytime. Is it true?
(4) If this is possible, will it be another fresh 6 years or the reminder of the initial one (3+ years of 6 is already done, first issue date was AUG 2009)
It would be nice if someone can answer these queries. Thanks in Advance.
