H1 B 6th year: PERM approved

4 posts in this topic


My PERM is applied and approved in 6th year. My employer is going to file I140 in premium but I have only 4 weeks left for completing 6 years.

1) Are there any ways to expedite I140 processing and H1 filing?
2) Is it possible to file H1 extension using Approved Perm and then after I140 approval can we update/share I140 documents?
3)  if H1 extension filing is done after 6 years, Am I allowed to stay in USA with out working? If yes, how long?
4) Are there any other options to stay in USA if there is delay in applying for h1 extension before 6 years?
Thanks in advance for the help.

Approved PERM can't be used to apply for extension. 

Only way is to file i140 and get approval, then file for h1b extension.
