My friend got it for 3 years. In your H1B ur attorney will mention that you have I140 approved and its petition number by mentioning that you have an immigration petion filed. So you will be getting 3 years.

Depending on your new job, you can get up to 3 years (you may get less if you are consulting or have layers or if your unlucky).

I know of friends who changed employer in 5th year H1B with an approved I-140 and got three years during transfer (this was about a year ago, so I don't know if rules have changed now). You would have to start your GC process again (PERM, I140..) with the new employer, though.

Thankyou Omshiv.

So the more still i delay , the less period of h1 i get correct ?
