Not a problem.

Let us know if you received your approval meanwhile.

Hi Permitme,

Wanted to know what was the end date given in the new approval? is it same as what was filed or since they had delayed approving for long to make up this delayed time have they given you an extended end date?

All,
My case was filed on 3rd May 2016 and the current status says the form I129 was received on 4th May 2016. Its a PP request. However, I still do not see any status update as its been more than 15 days now. is there a timeline for PP ( I was in an assumption that its less than 15 days)? Or are there any delays during this time of the year. Anybody who has filed their case during the same time frame, please share your updates.

H1B Amendment Approval (I-129) at VSC

Case Received : 15th September 2015
Case Approved : 26th May 2016

It was Normal. Didn't convert to Premium. So guys have patience and just wait.

For those who have H1B Extension with I797 and I94 but Amendment is still pending can travel to get their VISA stamping on the basis of their I94 and the receipt notice of their Amendment. Dependents can any how go for VISA stamping as the amendment is only for Primary Applicants.

For those whose I 94 expired and still waiting for Amendment approval or H1B extension petition approval and have completed 240 days need to stop working and go to India and wait for the approval.

Hope this information helps. All the best!!!

From where you got this info that in H extension post 240 days of i94 expiry, we need to leave US. I checked with my attorney and they mentioned, i can stay in US with loss of pay. Provide source of info else delete your misguiding comment.

to EB3IisDoomed:

Hello Mr. Doomed: Let me rephrase my sentence - You need to stop working immediately and your lawful nonimmigrant status ends, and you are out of status. Your DL will expire and as your attorney said you will be on LOP. If someone is there to take care of your day to day expenses and house rent its good if not no one wants to be in such situation and prefer to go back and wait for the approval in India.

If your application for an extension of stay is approved, the approval will relate back to the date your Form I-94 expired, and your status while your application is pending will then be considered to have been lawful.

If your application is denied, you may be required to cease employment and depart the United States immediately. In addition, any nonimmigrant visa in your passport granted in connection with your classification becomes void. Once your visa is void, you must submit any new visa application at a U.S. consulate in India.

In short, you have to stop working and it's advisable to leave the country and come back once your VISA is approved. Hope this helps.

All the best!!

I dont think Amendments can be upgraded to premium.. but after 180 days there are certain requests that can be made either by attorney or employer... I will explore that option in July 2nd week when mine will become 180 days..

Hello everybody
I just got my h1b relocation amendment approved after replying to rfe .. Still waiting for hard copy .. But in email it shows that my validity is till December 2017 though my original petition validity was till September 2016 and I guess we did not file for extension and we were waiting for the amendment approval to file for extension so I am wondering do I need to file extension now as in email it shows validity December 2017
