H1B extended to 7th year before I-140

Recommended Posts



While moving to another employer last year, I got my H1 transfer approval till Dec 2020 even though my 6 year maxes out in Dec 2019 (with recaptured time outside the US). I got the transfer approval in April 2018 and joined the new employer in May 2018.  The new employer started my GC process and I now have an approved I-140 as of couple of weeks ago. 


The question is: Given that I now have an approved I-140 (before the 6 years expiry in Dec 2019), do I really need to file an extension assuming Dec 2019 as max out date even though I have approval till Dec 2020 (Dec 2020 date on I797 approval notice, stamped visa and entered by CBP officer at port of entry)?


Would appreciate any advise. I don't want to unnecessarily file an extension now given that I have the approved/stamped visa till Dec 2020.
