Max stay during H1B Extension


Recommended Posts



I have a query regarding my H1B visa extension.


I came to USA in Oct-13 and in Dec-13 my employer filed an extension for it, 

as my I got my visa for only 11 months from (feb-13 to Jan-14).


On 4th Jan 2014 both my visa and I-94 expired.


As extension was already filed ,so i was waiting for it.


In Mar-14 i got an RFE for which my employer replied back in June-14 , since then I am waiting for the result.

It is still showing your response has been received and is under process.


Now my query is , How long I can stay in USA until extension  decision comes out.


I have read over the internet that I can stay only 240 days 

from the I-94 expiration date i.e (4th Jan 2014). Is that correct ?


What are the other alternatives except PP ?


Many Thanks
