Hi Ron, Ideally, once the beneficiary has approved 140 or PERM filed before 365 days of 6 year completion, H1B can be extended by that employer beyond 6 years and keep doing that. This is fine. Assume, if H1B holder who has 140 approved from employer A and in H1B for more than 6 years (say in 7th, 8th or 9th years) and changes to employer B. H1B can be extended for initial 3 years with employer B based on 140 approval from employer A(assume its not withdrawn at the time). I hear everyone say that new PERM and new 140 needs to be approved within 3 years to get further extension with employer B. Is that true for further H1B extensions, 140 needs to be approved with employer B (or) even PERM pending for more than 365 days with employer B at the end initial 3 years. [Say employer B filed PERM before end of 2 years in 3 year initial extn] should be fine? Can you clarify on this.
