Visa approved beyond maxed out period without I-140

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I had applied for H1b transfer in Nov 2018 and it was approved in Jul 2019. My visa max out time was in Nov 2019, but I travelled back to India in Aug 2019, to be on safe side and have travelled 2 months before max out time, as my client agreed me to work in India.

To my surprise my H1b extension was approved until 2021 OCT, even though my Max out was Nov 2019.

I will be getting my I-140 soon, considering current proclamation, I won't be able to get visa stamped until Jan 2021. But wanted to know, if I can go for visa stamping with the OCT 2021 I-797 and I-140 or should re apply for new H1Ext with i140?

Thanks for your help.

You can take the I797 and I140 approval for visa stamping, you don't need to apply for new I797 again if the current one is still active.
