I work for employer A. My employer filed my H1 in April 2014, and it got selected in USCIS lottery. Now, I have a valid H1-B petition for employer A which is valid till 2017. I have not got my passport stamped yet and hence have not travelled to the United States.
When I leave my employer A, he will revoke my existing petition.
I am about to pursue my masters (MBA) from the US, and plan to go there on an F1 (Student) visa. I have the following query. Would appreciate if any one can help me with this.
After I complete my graduation in 2017, I would need my new employer (B), to file for my H1. I need to know, when employer B files for my H1, will it be a new application all together, and my application will again undergo the lottery system used by USCIS or will my application be exempted from Cap (Lottery) since I previously had an approved petition for employer A, though it has been revoked now and the 3 year period(2014-2017) for which my petition was valid is over.
