  • H1B - Eligibility Period For Second Extension

    Hi All,
    I got first H1B approval in Apr2016 for one year.

    First Extension:
    I didn't go for stamping for one year and applied for extension just before the expiry date and got 2 Years 6 Months extension which is valid until Oct 2018.

    First H1B Stamping & I94:
    I went for stamping in Sep2017 and came to USA in H1B by Dec 2017. I have I-94 until Oct 2018.

    Length of Stay in USA on H1B :
    By Oct 2018, I would have stayed in USA in H1B for 22 Months however my total approvalwill expire for 3 Years & 6 Months (44 Months).

    1) My company is willing to file for extension. Is this my last extension possible before applying GC?
    2) In this Second H1B extension, how many more years of extension I am eligible considering my 22 months stay out of 42 Months from earlier approvals.

    Can somebody help me to understand the max possible stay in H1B for my case.
