Strong7799 posted a topic in H1B : 7th Year ExtensionHello Everyone - I’m in my 6th year of my H1B visa and have an approved I-140 with my current employer (I140 approval received on 8th Feb 2019). Also, my current H1B going to expire on October 25th 2019 (max out is on same date). Last week (18th Feb 2019) my role has been changed from Technical Lead to Architect. With new role, I’m going to work with same employer and same client project with no change in work location. Note that, I140 is approved on Technical Lead role. Now in my situation, 1. For role change, do I still need to file Amendment? Of course there is a change is salary amount. 2. I know, I can file amendment and extension together but I have couple of month to file my extension i.e. possibly on/after 29th April if we consider max 180 days before)? So is it fine to hold amendment filing till 29th April so that I can file amendment and extension together? 3. Or do I need to file the amendment immediately and later when reach max 180 days for H1B expiry can file the extension for my 7th year H1B? 4. Ideally how much time USCIS take for normal amendment processing? Thank you in advance! Regards
