7th Year H1B Extension

California Immigration Lawyer
Sacramento, San Francisco, San Jose and Santa Clara

How can you extend your H-1B to a seventh year?

Your H-1B visa is valid for a total of six years in three-year increments. If you still are looking to continue living in the U.S. and working toward citizenship, you may be able to extend your H-1B in one-year increments for the seventh year forward.

If you have a PERM that’s been pending for a year or longer, or if you have an I-140 that’s been pending for a year or longer, you may qualify for the H-1B seventh year extension. Start the PERM process early so that you have a greater chance to extend your H-1B to a seventh year.

The best way to work toward this goal is to start the PERM process early, because you need to have both the PERM and the I-140 approved before you file for the H-1B three-year extension.

Do not be discouraged if another employer already filed a PERM or an I-140 — it is possible that you could still qualify for a seventh-year H-1B extension, but remember that you should consult with a qualified immigration attorney to learn how the specifics of your situation affect your case.
