My current H-1B is valid till 31st May 2012 and my employer is ready apply for a renewal/extention for another 3 years. The problem is my passport expires in the November of 2013.
My question thus is, if I apply for H-1B renewal/extension now, will I get it for 3 years or will it be from June 2012 to November 2013 (just 18 months), which is when my passport expires?
If it'll just be for 18 months, should I get my passport renewed now before filing for a visa extension? The problem here is that my country (India) doesn't allow passport renewals more than 1 year in advance of the expiry.
