H1B Relocation while PERM is in progress

Recommended Posts


My Current H1B Validity was till Oct 2022. This is my last extension before max-out period (Jan,2022).

My perm was filed on Aug 05,2021 and is still pending approval.

I might have to relocate to different state due to project issues with same employer and designation (salary might change) . I would like to understand the following:

1. Will my re-location affects my PERM application? 

2. Should I wait until my PERM, i140 completes and then relocate?

3. After PERM and i140 completes (with current location) if i relocate will I get H1B extension or do I need to file new PERM and i140 again (with new location) before going for extension?

4. If i go for an extension in new location , will my H1B extension get approved? (with PERM and i140 approved in old location)
