H1B - Can my employer request extension for the remainder of 6 year


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I first landed on H1B status in July 2014. When I switched to my current employer 3 years back (Jan 2017), H1B was approved for 3 years. It will end in Jan 2020. As far as I know, an employer can request for approval for maximum 3 years on a given LCA/I-129.

Now, after my current approval ends in Jan 2020, I still have around 6 months more to complete the 6 year period in H1B. My question is, can my employer file for 6 months extension, plus any time I was outside the US?

Thanks in Advance!
