H1B Transfer in Cap Exempt

Posted: 20 January 2016 - 10:47 PM
Hi All,

My old Employed A filed my H1-B in 2012, and I traveled to US in Oct 2012.
I worked over there around 18 Months and came back India in March 2014.
I switched to Employer B in Oct 2014, my new Employer B tried to initiate new petition filing
under old H1-B Cap Exempt but now Immigration team is saying that
As per USCIS they cannot process the case under H1-B Cap Exempt because my old
petition got revoked when I was working with Employer A only.

Is this really a hurdle to use Cap Exempt?

Will be so much great full if anyone can help me out so I can use my previous Company's H1-B Cap.

I believe that the you are cap exempt for 6 years. Petition revoking means you cannot work for that employer. thats it.

Is there anything you came across? because I am also in same boat.
