Dear Sir,

This is Venkat from Singapore. My H1B is picked in lottery of 2016 quota and visa was issued in 2015, but I did not travel to US with VISA so far. My Visa is going to expire in Sep 2018.

In this case, what will happen if I am able to find my job after Sep 2018?

1) Can the expiry visa be transferred to another employer after expiry (Sep, 18)?

2) Would it be through a fresh h1 petition through cap-exempt? How is it different from H1b transfer application?

3) Since I have not used my cap of 6 years so far, Will my transferred H1 be valid (base + extension) from the data of travel?

4) Would I be eligible for next 6 years for cap-exempt quota? Mine is picked in 2016 quota so deadline is 2012 for cap-exempt or will it be any time if I do not travel?

Appreciate your clarification.

Warm Regards
