  • Timeframe of cap exemption & validity of a new H-1B visa for former H-1B holder

    I have a specific question regarding the timeframe of the cap exemption granted for the H1-B visa. I read various conflicting/confusing articles on this online that the timeframes become all confusing and muddled due to verbiage.

    I have held a H1-B visa from October 1, 2012 through June 6, 2014 (20 months & 6 days) when I resigned my job and left the USA for PhD studies elsewhere. Having completed the PhD, I am now interested in returning to the USA by trying for employment in for-profit private companies different to original one that sponsored my original H1-B visa.

    The questions are:

    Until what calendar date am I exempt from capping for my next H1-B visa?
    If a company does indeed sponsor a H1-B, how long will the newly issued visa be valid for?
