Filing perm before 6th year of h1b or before end of h1b expiry - need clarity


Recommended Posts



Here is my situation.


Employer A:


h1b start date : Sep 2011

Approved I-140 in Sep 2014


Moved to EmpB in Oct 2015 using 140 with Emp A and got 3 years 

current h1b expiry with Emp B - Oct 2018


Emp B hasn't started the GC process yet.  Now, my question is..


Does Emp B has to file Perm before Oct 2017 (which is my current h1b expiry date) or Sep 2016 ( which is 1 year before 6 year limit). I am confused here.


Please help
