what happens if H1b petiton is not approved in 240 days?


Recommended Posts

Hi, My H1B visa transfer is in progress under regular processing. Since there is a delay in the processing now a days due to heavy backlog, I am contemplating converting it to premium processing before USCIS stops accepting them. My question is how much time does USCIS typically takes to respond to a case? Can it be more than 240 days? If my cases is not responded within 240 days, I will lose my work authorization. Can I still remain in the USA while I am waiting for the visa approval? Or do I have to leave the country?
