My H1B VISA was approved for three years on Oct’2012 and I worked in USA from Oct’2012 to Dec’2015. During 2015, my extension was filed and approved for another three years so I got VISA until June’2018. But I travelled back to India on Dec’2015 for personal reasons. Last year 2017, I travelled back to USA since I have valid VISA and planning to go back to India by May’2018.
If I do the math correctly, I stayed 4 years in USA and have 2 more years of H1B pending.
Will I be eligible for H1B Cap Exempt if I apply next year 2019? Also please tell me how many days I should stay outside of USA to apply for Cap exempt?
