Can h1B extension be filed while I am in INDIA


Recommended Posts

Hello Experts,


My current petition is valid for 6 months 20 days. I need to go to INDIA now. I plan to be back after 2 months.  I need to go for stamping as my stamping in passport is expired.


When I go for stamping in INDIA, I will get only 6 months 20 days of stamping. If I can apply for extension (premium) and carry the extended petition, I can get more stamping period.


My employer says that if we file for extension, now, it will not be accepted as it is more than 6 months before we are filing. 


Can they apply for my H1 extension after I go to INDIA. when it touched the 6 months mark.


Thank you for reading my post. Thanks in advance for your response.
