H-1B Approval Recapturing Time Abroad

Our New York immigration law firm received an H-1B extension approval recapturing time spent outside of the United States. An individual is generally limited to a maximum of 6 years in H-1B status. However, only time spent in the United States counts toward the 6 year H-1B time limit. Our client had spent a significant amount of time outside the United States during his six 6 years in H-1B status. Our immigration lawyer New York team carefully documented our client’s time outside the United States and requested that USCIS extend his H-1B status beyond the 6 year limit. We are delighted about this result and wish our client continued happiness and success in the United States.   

You can find more information about the H-1B visa, the employment-based immigration USA process, and about our immigration lawyer NYC services in our explanation of the H-1B visa category.
