H1 Extension - Notice Explaining USCIS Actions Was Mailed


Recommended Posts

Hi All

I worked in USA for more than seven years in H1B Visa. I got stuck in india while traveled for personal reasons.   My current H1-B Petition valid till October 2021.  Meanwhile  I  got offer from another Company in USA and they submitted the H1 transfer / extension in premium while i am in india. 

USCIS changed case status as  "Notice Explaining USCIS Actions Was Mailed" .  I checked with Attorney he said "USCIS will not accept a request for extension of status while you are out of the United States so we may need to provide a new  document requesting for approval. "

what could be wrong in initial H1 petition submitted ?

Can we transfer / extend my H1-B while i am outside of USA ?   What type of H1-B petition to extend / transfer the H1 while i am out of status. 

Note:

I have approved I-140 to extend H1B for more than 6 years. 

 

Appreciate all the comments.

They clearly answered that and you've also highlighted that in you post "USCIS will not accept a request for extension of status while you are out of the United States".

You are going in loop.......you already tried and they said no, that's the reason you posted this question.

None or not the kind you have. IMO possible if extension beyond 6 years is requested based on approved i-140 but not transfer while you're out of country.
