    hi

    Please advice me

    I just got my H1b amendment approved .My I797 is expiring by October 2017

    As we know from April 2017 there will be no premium processing of any H1B processing

    Should I apply for H1B extension in premium processing by now or apply regular after April 2017


    Your advice and suggestion is appreciated

    You can't apply for H-1B renewal before 180 days of expiry

    If your existing H-1B petition is expiring in Oc 2017 as you said, unfortunately, you can't renew it in premium since you can't apply for renewal before April 2017 (6 months)
