Hi,

 

My 6 years H1B stay in US will complete in JUL 2015 (including recapture). My PERM is filed in SEP 2014.

 

If there is an audit on PERM, and it remain in audit status until SEP 2015, can my company apply for H1-extension in SEP 2015 (after 1 calendar year of PERM file date)?

 

Thank you for your help!

Thank you Jairichi!

Just confirming... in JUL 2015, I would have to go back and work from India, and in SEP 2015, company has to apply the H1 and once it is approved, I can come to US. Correct?

Thank you for your help!

Only if your PERM or 140 is pending for approval for more than 365 days or an approved I140 will get you extension beyond 6 years on H1B.

Yes, the only doubt that is concerning is, My H1 will expire in July, I will go back to India, and in September, can we apply for extension of the expired H1?

Thank you for your patience!
