  1. Hello, I applied for h1b extension last August and have received an RFE. The RFE asks me to provide the approved I-140. My 6th year in H1b is going to be over by next week and my PERM is still in progress ( PERM was applied in April,15) I was out of the country for almost 3 months since I first received my H1b visa. Would it be possible for me to use these 3 months and request USCIS to extend my visa for 3 months. I hope my PERM would be approved in the meantime and I would be able to file for I140 immediately after it and later apply for a new H1b extension petition. Kindly please advise if I can provide anything to support my RFE. Thank you

    H1b Extension RFE

    Hello, I had applied for H1b visa extension and last week I have received an RFE for the same. USCIS has asked for the approved 1-140 ( My 6th year would in H1b would complete in the next week) My PERM is in the process as of now ( It was applied in April ,15). In this scenario,what would be the best way to reply the RFE. I was out of the country for almost 3 months. Could I accumulate the time when I was outside USA and request for an extension for 2-3 months. I think if I get extension for 3 months , by the time my PERM would be approved and I would be apply for another extension at that time. Kindly please suggest me. Thank you
