Are you a full-time employee? I am in the same boat and am about to apply for H1-B extension based on I-140 approval. I am in EVC model and my client has given a letter with 1 year project extension only. Is there anyway I can get a full 3yr extension? I am tired to doing these one year extensions.

Thumbs up H1 extension

I understand. I got 2.5 yrs extension. My understanding, usually USCIS gives extension based upon client letter. Good wishes!

Question

Hi,

I am in India and just got my first H1B approval which is valid till April 2013. I shall be coming to US in April this year. Please let me know the process for H1B extension.

Does it depend on the annual cap that is there on H1? What if it gets full?

When and how can I apply for the extension?

Any info that you guys can provide would be great.

Thanks for help.

Hi vibpar: Welcome aboard.

Once H1B is approved then it is not subject to any quotas for renewals. Your company will have to file for your extension at least 4 months before the expiry date (I would recommend 6 months) as sometimes USCIS takes longer now days. Unless you want to file for Premium Processing which would cost you/your company approx $1200 extra. Your company attorney would file for your extension with the USCIS, so this should not be of any concern for you now.

Default Regarding H1B Extension

Hello,

I am new to these forums so i apologies if this is not the right thread for this sort of discussion. Here is the situation

Visa Valid till : April 3, 2013
I-94 Valid till: April 3, 2013

My employer is already starting the H1B Extension process using regular processing. Here are the questions i have:

1. In case visa extension is denied well before my I94 expires, can i stay in US till april 3, 2013? or do i have leave

country immediately upon denial of extension?
2. In case extension is denied, what are my options? provided i have time left in my I-94 expiry? Visa transfer? Repeal of

extension?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks a lot.

Regards.

Hello. Here is a description of my situation:

Due to my lateness and mistake on HR side (delayed/wrongfully filled LCA) my first H1B extension was send without approved LCA and was simply sent back to me. I-94 expired on Sept 7. Finally i have my LCA approved now and plan on resubmitting the application ASAP requesting premium processing. My understanding is that extension will most likely be approved but the extension of status will not and I will have to go through consular processing.

I was planning on eventually applying for employment based GC (EB1 or EB2) but my girlfriend (US citizen) suggested that we can get married and file for marriage based GC.

I wonder would I be able to return back to work based on approved i-797 and pending i-485? The usual combination would be approved EAD and pending i-485 i beleive but EAD will take longer that i-797 via premium processing. Returning back to work ASAP is a high priority both for me and my employer so if this route is legal it will be faster than restamping my passport with h1B back in Russia (i will have to renew the passport, schedule appointment etc) or waiting for i-485-dased EAD.

Please let me know what is your opinion - would approved i-797 and pending i-485 (marriage-based) be sufficient for returning to work legally?

Default Travel while H1B Extension pending

My brother has an emergency situation. He is currently in US. He has filed for H1 Extension and has not yet received a decision. His previous H1 has expired. Can he travel while H1B petition is still pending?

He recently upgraded to Premium and still has not received a reply. If it is approved, can he travel before getting the document in hand?

Kindly request a reply as it is an emergency situation.
