H1B transfer after 6th year with approved I-140

Recommended Posts


Below is my situation.

- I have H1B approved in  Jan-2013 and I came to US in May-2013 with Employer-A and I am with same employer till now.

- Employer-A has filed for GC and I got my I-140 approved sometime in 2015.

- Employer-A has been extending my H1B. I got my last extension in Apr-2018 and got an extension till Mar-2021.

- Please note that my last extension is beyond my 6th year and I got a 3 year extension because of my approved I-140.

- Now, I am planning to change to Employer-B. 

- Obviously, Employer-B has to apply for my H1B transfer.

My questions are as below.

- In 2019, my H1B 6 years will be completed.

- Now, when my new Employer-B apply for H1B transfer, is there any risk because I have already completed 6 years of my H1B?

- Will USCIS still consider my approved I-140 from previous Employer-A and give extension for 3 years?

- Are there any risks because my I-140 is from previous Employer-A?


Thanks in Advance.
