H1B Change of role under same project chance of extension approval

Hi Team,

Due to prevailing wage issues i was told to change role by my employer for H1B visa extension. Does changing role under same project and location has chances of denial.
Please let me know.

Hi @Vicky_singh

Each H1B extension is evaluated as if it is a new application as per new USCIS guidelines. So, it does not matter if you change role for extension or file with same previous role.

Both will be judged with the supporting documents that you submit. Chances of approval are same.

Hi @Anil_Gupta … thanks so much for the response. Does change of role also needs amendment or just extension will new role will work. As i mentioned before project location is same in my case.

Hi @Vicky_singh

Change of role would require an amendment as per my opinion.
