  • got H1B extension for longer period than expected

    I have recently changed my employer and applied for h1b transfer. I got my H1B approval and I found that the period mentioned on the I-94 exceeds the 6 years cap that is allowed for h1b workers. I was on H1B since 1998 December, and now I got an extension till 2006 May.(I am only supposed to get till 2004 Dec)

    What shall I do?

    Thanks in advance!

    USCIS sometimes makes such mistakes. You still should not continue to work on H1 after the 6 years are over.
    Doing otherwise can cause problems later on.

      If your GC labor application is pending for more than 1 year or I-140 is pending for more than 1 year then you can extend your H-1 for the 7th year.

        Thanks for your replies. But do I have to notify anybody about this mistake?

        My wife has filed for green card and we are expecting to complete the labor by the end of this year. I am hoping that I will still have one more year left to get my EAD.

          No, it is not necessary to inform USCIS. They have all the data in their files, anyway.
