  • H1 Extension beyond 6 years

    My original H1-B application was approved in Jan 2004. Till now I have taken only one extension which is valid till Apr-09. However I have only spent 32 months in the US till now. I have been in India for the remaining time.

    Can someone tell me how much time is left on my H1? If I go for an extension now, will the extension be valid till Jan 2010 (6 year limit)?
    Or will they consider that I have spent only 32 months so potentially I have 40 more months left.

    Please note that I have not filed for a green card and do not intend to do so.

    Please advise.
