  • H1B Petition validity

    My H1B petition valid only for 2 yesrs up to 2012.
    Usually it will be for 3 years. Is there any cases who got petition validity less than 3 years.

    How many years can i extend after 2 years in this case. Will that be 3 years or less.

    It need not be 3 yrs all the time. It depends on the project and the LCA given by the employer. You will have a total of 6 years irrespective of what the increments are.

    I am not a lawyer and you need to consult with one to validate any info posted on the forum and discuss your case specifics. H1b Question? Read the FAQ first.

        Is that H1B petitin still valid? A petition will not be valid for more than 3 year. Is the same job still exist in U.S? Is the location and job duties still the same? If you answer YES to all these questions, then you can go for the visa stamping.

          I too have the same case. Did you complete the stamping? If so what is the procedur.

          I too have the visa approved in 2008 but not stamped. Can I stamp it now?
          If so what is the procedure? Need help to find an answer.
          How do i get form 797. I am not sure if I got it stored from my consultant.

          Regards...
