L1B + H1B 6year ends at Jan 2014 but H1-B approved notice till Dec 2014


Recommended Posts

Hi, I was here on L1 - B till DEC 6th 2012 from Oct 28th 2007

My company applied for a change of status to H1B, which I got on Dec 6th 2012.

If I calculate my 6 year term with L1b+ H1, the 6 year period is completing on Jan 2014(excluding the days outside india on vacation).

But USCIS gave me an approval for my New H1B(Change of status applied as part of 2012 H!-B quota) till Dec 2014, which is till end of seventh year.

My Perm/Labour will be filed on June 2013. If i don't get my I-140 till Jan 2014, can I stay beyond that since I have a Valid H1-B approval notice till Dec 2014.

So that I will have buffer time to get my I-140 Approved.
