Six year H1-B max out period calculation

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am curious to know, if we there is any way where the most current H1-B visa time is more than the standard 6 year period. Say if by using the travel departure  history, the total amount of time spent in the US is calculated to see how much of the 6 year visa time you have used. But when you calculate that you see that the H1-B, I-797 show more time than the 6 years you calculated using the arrival departure record. Is this possible ?

Sometimes USCIS makes an error. Don't stay past 6 years.

USCIS usually gives 3 years extension without considering this. Its your duty to stay & work in the US only for 6 years and leave.

It matters when the H1 was filed. You don't say anything about that. The clock would reset if the H1 was filed more than one year after you left the US.
