Hi all, What happens to H1B when one quits job and moves back to India? Can someone explain. I am not looking to move back to USA. But, I want to know.

It’s valid for a period of 6 years (from original dates) in the sense that you would be cap exempt till 6 yrs from original date of issue if some other company files for your h1b again in that time period.

I’d guess since your h1 is tied to your employer, if you quit your job, it’d no longer be valid.

Think you wont have to go through lottery if you decide to come back. Your H1b will be 'reactivated'. But dont k ow how long till it actually expires.

On a side note what i know is your h1b will be paused. Meaning if you had a valid h1b for 3 years and leave the country after 1 year you would have 2 years of valid h1b left. Since it is tied to employer, not sure how it works if u change the employer

Life in Europe isn’t too bad either.

Hey Googlers. Currently going through the interview process and got there via referral. Im just curious how serious the actual referral is taken when considering someone for a job/interview? For example at B4 a referral just gets you a look at HR and the text of the referral and who it’s from doesn’t matter at all, it’s more of a checking a box exercise to get HRs attention. Is it the same at Google or is it more significant?
