i140 and H1B extension in process and Moving out of US


Recommended Posts


My i140 (applied on Aug 01 2016) and H1B extension (applied on September 09 2016) petitions are pending for approval and i am moving out of US for 3-6 months to India. Utilized 5 years and 6 months of H1B.


  1. Would there be any impact to both petitions getting approved. If any how to avoid that.
  2. Can i transfer H1B to another employer while in India.
  3. How long should i stay with i140 filed employer to retain i140 and not getting revoked and retain PD.
  4. Do i need to change to consular processing for i140 petitions and would that lead to additional time for approval. 

Thanks in advance for checking this out and replying back.
