I have h-1b and 6 year getting completed on June 2022 and Perm process is initiated by company and it is in progress, looking at the progress, it looks like that perm will not be filed 365 days before my max out date and therefore very less chance of i140 approval before max out date. As per the company process, GC process will be continued even though I move back to India.
Do I have the correct understanding? Please advise if there is any other option.
- If I will relocate to India after consuming 6 yr of h1b and i140 approval comes after that while I am in India, I need to go through the lottery process to get h1b to come back to USA.
- If I will relocate to India few months (e.g. 6 month before) before completion of 6 yr of h1b, can come back to USA just by filing the h1b extension in cap exempt quota after I receive my i140 approval.
