Previous H1B approved,unused expired(tot-6 years), Is it exempt from Quota Cap


New Member
Hi All and Expterts,

My friend had H1B approval in Oct 2008, Because of recession, he could not use it nor entered USA from then on.
He is trying to get H1B sponsor from US now. Questions on this.
1) Is he Exempt from Quota cap , if an employer files new H1B petition?
2) He is into QA and working in iGate with overall experience of 7 years, Are there any good companies in USA or referrals you can guys can suggest.

Thank you,
