In 2013 I applied for an H1-B work visa for the U.S. The visa was approved and I moved to the U.S. After four months of working there I quit my job, though, and returned to Europe. I am now, several months later, thinking about applying for another H1-B visa with another company. The job description of the new job is almost identical to the old one

I wanted to know whether the fact that I quit my job on the first H1-B visa diminishes my chances of being approved for another H1-B visa

  • I am trying to get a concrete answer to this, but I would think that your prior approval combined with your leaving (properly) the country after quitting the job for which you received it would actually increase your chances of getting a new one. – CGCampbell Nov 17 '14 at 13:36
  • Hi. I'm afraid this site is for recreational travel. You might like to look at our Expatriates' site to see if this question can be answered. expatriates.stackexchange.com – DJClayworth Nov 17 '14 at 15:37
  • @DJClayworth I see from the help center that questions about work visas are indeed off-topic, but do you have a reference to support that questions here are restricted to "recreational" travel? The only reference I found expressly welcomes questions about business travel. – alx9r Nov 17 '14 at 23:05

    @alx9r Yes, my mistake. I meant short term travel. – DJClayworth Nov 17 '14 at 23:25
