Amendment/Extension Approval Date Less than Current H1B Visa(Stamped) date

(Surender Goud) #1

Hi Team,

My H1B stamped visa is valid till 05/22/2019 and also I94.

But my employer filed H1B Amendment&Extension in September 2018 which got approved on 04/02/2019 with valid from 09/11/2018 to 12/28/2018. I received this approval today.

Could you please let me know if I am legal to work till 05/22/2018?

Also is there a way we can differentiate between Amendment and Extension applications?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Surender

Each Amendment application is an extension application too.

You can work as per the earlier H1B approval terms and location till 5/22/2019.

Thanks Anil for quick reply.

As you said extension&amendment is same, does my latest approval(12/28/2018) takes precedence over my previous H1B stamped vsia(05/22/2019).

Visa is a completely different thing. Visa is not affected by H1B extension/Amendment approvals.
