H1B Extension Pending

Recommended Posts



I have applied for extension of H1B in month of Dec 2015 along with Extension for my Dependent. I have received a receipt number as well. However status for my case still shows as Case Received. I have received receipt on 21st Dec 2015. Can someone please let me know what is timeframe to get extension approved and for how many months I am eligible to stay with out approval.


My case is with Vermont Service Center.

My case was filed for H1b extension on July 28th 2015 under normal processing. I still see the "case was recieved" status as of today Apr 7th 2016. Its more than 8 months and 10 days :(


Is there any timelimit upto which we can stay here just with the H1B acknowledgement reciept? I heard its i94 expiry date + 240 days is the limit. Not sure if its true though.


Can someone provide inputs on it please?
