Default H1 Ext Info please

Hi Gurus,

My emp has filed my H1B ext 3 months before still no result. I have only 6 months left. How long does it take to get extension in Vermont center (ordinary process). Will there be any risk if I make it premium.

Incase of H1B denial can I do transfer to another company with approved I-140 ( only have number) in that case will my H1B visa will be extended for 3 years or only for the remaining period of the Visa

Thanks in advance

i've had h1 extension in the past with premium processing (after 140 approval) - no problems.
also have a pending ordinary extension too - filed around july begining - and waiting. per that other site i cannot name the avg wait seems to be around 4 months or so.

can't answer to moving to another co. in case of denial - but curious why you would think there would be a denial for an extension with an approved 140?

good luck

Thanks gaz for quick help

Acutally I did not place this question properly. If I going to change my job to another employer with my approved I-140 number will I be getting ext only for the visa valid period say 7 months or for 3 years.

If I would get only 7 months visa validaity then I would need to go back to India as new employer wont start labor less than 1 year

Thats the reason I am just trying to figure it out whether it is safe to do the H1 transfer before I get my ext with current employer

Thanks again
