H1B expiring with Pending PERM


Recommended Posts


H1B expiring after recapture all time outside US on May 3, 2018

PERM filed on Dec 19, 2017 (current processing time without audit is 4 to 5 months) 

Estimated PERM approval = May 18, 2018 - May 30, 2018

My U.S. Company has overseas subsidiary establishment in my home country, Hong Kong


1) Can i keep my U.S. employment and pay check while I physically outside the U.S.A.? 

2) Can i work remotely in Hong Kong for the same U.S. Company and receive paycheck in my U.S, bank account? 

3) Can i go to Hong Kong and apply a visitor visa (B1/B2) to come back to U.S.A. for Business meeting while I am waiting the I-140 approval? 

4) Can PERM processing status be checked somewhere? Or i have to wait the attorney for any news? 

5) Do i need to suspend my U.S. employment and start my Hong Kong employment with the oversea branch  (since i need to have income)? 

Thank you for any reply you can give.
