  • Unsed H1B-Utilized 1 year only out of 6 years


    My H1B was picked in the lottery in year 2014 and I have travelled for the first time in May 2015 for 6 months.
    Later I travelled back to India in OCtober 2015.My Amendment was filed and I travelled again in Janauary 2016 till June 2016 and once again I travelled back to India.
    In total till now I have utilized approximately 1 year of my H1B and my last petition which was approved was till June 2018.

    Now I want to know how much time I am leaft with to stay in US.Since H1B allow to stay upto 6 years is it I still have 5 years of time left with me.
    If I can use my remaining period of H1B ,then in that case until when I need to travel back.Do we have any upper limit that I cannot stay more than particular number of year away from US to re-enter n theold H1B.

    Kindly suggest.
    1st travel Date - May 2015(6 Months)
    2nd Travel Date - January 2016(6 Months)
    Last Petition approval Date- June 2018

    You have 5 yrs. left. For using your old petition, you should have held a H1 status in the past 6 yrs.
