  • 6 Year H1 Extension


    My H1-B (completing 6 years) will be expiring in Mar. 2001.
    My labor and I-140 are approved in EB-3 (Priority Date: Dec. 97).
    My priority date is not current. I am planning on applying for
    a H1-B extension under the new law (S.2045) within the next
    couple of weeks.

    1) Am I eligible for the H1-B extension?

    2) Are anyone of you or any you know in a position such as mine?
    If so, could you please advise as what steps should I take. Has
    anyone who has applied received the H1-B from the INS or any
    sort of notice, if so, what does it contain?
    Has the law been implemented by the INS yet?

    Your valuable input is appreciated.

    1) Yes, you can. It is what new law for.
    2) I guess there might be few people gone through this process. The extension will be same as you did your first 3 year extension with added proof on your I140 etc. Your lawyer should have these information.
