I had a quick visit to India in between during Feb 2014 for vacation of 2 weeks and had H1B stamping in India to match revised petition of Oct 2014.

    I returned to india in May 2014 and resigned employer A from India office in July 2014. I have taken career break for 2+ years. I have Joined Employer B in india from May 2017 to till Today.

    Hi Vishwa,

    Were you able to process cap exempt H1B transfer? Because I am in a similar situation now.

    I am currently in India, on a career break for last 1.5 years. I returned from USA in Feb 2017 and my H1B expired in Mar 2019. Since I have 2.5 more years for H1B max out, I am planning to look for job opportunities in USA to resume my career.

    Thanks in advance.
