  • H1 to H4 and back again on H1

    Hi,

    My H1 is expiring on Sept 2012. I would like to go on H4 for six-nine months and then apply h1 again.

    My question is :
    1. will i come under cap for 2013 and have to start job from OCt 2013
    2. I will not come under cap and can start any time when i have approved H1B.

    >>> How many years have you used in your current H1B CAP. Have you maxed out the 6 year CAP limit?

    1. will i come under cap for 2013 and have to start job from OCt 2013
    >>> If you still have time left in your H1B 6 year period, then any employer can file a CAP exempt petition for you using the CAP from the previous H1B approval notice and request an immediate start date.

    2. I will not come under cap and can start any time when i have approved H1B.
    >>> Yes. You cannot work until the COS from H4 to H1B gets approved. Once approved, you should start working imediately as of the H1B effective date.
