H1B amendment I 797 vs Original H1B I 797 ??

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have received a H1 B Amendment for location/client change approval I 797 that is valid till 12/31/2018.

I already have approved I 797 Petition that is approved till 08/22/2019 and also have Visa stamped till 08/22/2019.

 

Question:

1. Since the amendment petition was approved recently (expires on 12/31/2018) does it override my original H1 B petition expiration date?

2. Do i need to file extension considering the new I 797 petition expiration date (expires on 12/31/2018) or go with earlier approve I 797 (08/22/2019)?

Hello, 

1. Since the amendment petition was approved recently (expires on 12/31/2018) does it override my original H1 B petition expiration date - Yes

2. Do i need to file extension considering the new I 797 petition expiration date (expires on 12/31/2018) or go with earlier approve I 797 (08/22/2019)? - If you continue to work with the same client until the end of you petition (New Approved Petition) then you have to file for an extension or if you move to another client and file for another amendment then depending on its validity you might have to file
