Is it possible to get 3 years extension without PERM approval after 6 six years


Recommended Posts



My perm has been filed on 01 May 2013 which is as per my employer is not approved till today. I have completed my six years on H1B on 31 Jul 2014. My employer has filed for the H1 extension and I got it extension for 2 years 9 months.


My question is, is it possible to get extension for 2 years 9 months without PERM approval and with out I-140 approval?

OP clearly mentioned that his PERM is pending according to his employer.


This is what I collected after carefully reading this case. You can disagree with my analysis.


OP completed 6 yrs on H1b.

OP says his employer tells him PERM is pending. However his H1b got extended by 2 yrs 9 months.

So his question was - how is this possible?


Obviously this is not possible when PERM is pending for more than 365 days. Because you would get only 1 yr extension.

So he is under impression that his employer has used I-140 approval to ask extension up to 3 yrs and USCIS gave 2 yrs 9 months.
