I have my h1b petition and visa set to expire on 31st DEC 2017.
Petition validity: 2015 october- 2017 December
Visa validity: 2016 Oct 31st - 2017 DEC 31st
In this scenario , is cap exempt applicable post expiration date?
Is there any new rule in place that lottery is required and h1b petition is no longer useful?
Can I use my petition number and get it extended from a different employer as I have not completed my 6 years of petition eligibility?
Note: I have not travelled to USA yet. I'm still in India.
Please provide your valuable thoughts on the above questions. Thanks
