    I-94 Extension (H1-B)
    I arrived in US on H1B visa in May 2007 and worked for a company X for two years. I joined another company Y in May 2009 on a new approved H1B petition and was employed with them until May 2017. This company also filed for my immigrant visa and I received Labor and I-140 approval on February 2012.
    I switched jobs in May 2017 and joined my current employer on a new approved H1B petition that is valid until April 2020. I used the approved I-140 from the previous employer to support my H1B application as I had crossed the 6 years cap on H1B employment.
    I was out of the country for a week in September 2017 and when I arrived back in US, at the port of entry, the CBP officer gave me a new I-94 valid until April 2018 (passport expiry date). Since then I have renewed my passport.

    - How do I get end date on my current I-94 extended to match that of my current H1B petition that is valid until April 2020?
    You can't change your I-94; you can only get a new I-94, either by extension of status or by entering the country.

    Yes. Your company can file another I-129 to extend your status.

    Yes, usually. But if you re-enter after a brief visit to Canada or Mexico there is a chance the officer will just admit you on Automatic Revalidation on your previous I-94.
