H1B Amendment denied but extn available till May 2020


Recommended Posts


I work for a employer E1. I have an approved visa extn till may 2020 for client C1. My employer filed an amendment for client C2 during March 2019, it was pending for nearly 7 months and got denied on 10/18/2019. I am waiting for the papers from USCIS to know the reason. 

It will help me if you can clarify me the below questions.

1) Can i go back to client C1 and work till visa validity?

2) Can i go back to C1 location back and work for another client C3 (within 25 miles from C1) using the 25 miles radius rule without any  new amendment. 

3) Will this H1B amendment denial impact my PERM processing or i140 approval?
