H1B extension denied, but amendment approved with extension of stay

Recommended Posts

My H1B extension was filed last year and my I-94 was expired on Sep 15 2019. And there was an amendment for location change filed (different receipt no.) on top my extension petition after my I-94 expired (while I was in 240 days stay).

There was no update on my extension petition and my company's immigration team was inquiring with USCIS. Meanwhile, I got the approval notice for my amendment petition, which also came with an extension of stay till 2022. Recently my company's received the RFE for my original extension petition with a past due date, for which they were preparing to respond. And before they respond, my petition got denied from USCIS.

In this situation, am I still eligible to work and permitted to stay with the I-94 I got in the amendment approval notice? Please advise.

Thanks in advance.

Can your company appeal the denial of H1b extension (file motion to reopen)  explaining the situation?  In case the USCIS accepts it and reopens the case, then you can decide the next steps after consulting the attorney (i.e either respond to the RFE or  withdraw the case).  

A denial goes into your immigration records.
