H1B 7th Year Extended w/ PERM Pending <365 Days


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


My dates:

Current H1B expires: Jan 2016 (I am currently in 5th year)

6th year H1B expires: Dec 2016

PERM filed: Dec 2014

PERM denied: Jun 2015

PERM reconsideration submitted: Jul 2015


My company has applied extension for me but the end date on the approval notice is Feb 2018 (7th year extension + recapture of unused H1B time). Is the end date valid - my understanding is that 7th year will only be granted if PERM is pending for >365 days and the extension cannot be applied 180 days prior to the 6th year expiration date.


Thank you very much!!
