    Hi Ron,
    Does one have to leave the country if petition for renewal is not filed before I94 expired? My colleague has a situation where his employer is working to file extension last min and he wants to know if it is file a day or two after it is expired already? Does he have a grace period of 30 days or anything like that in books?

    If your colleague is lucky, the USCIS will grant his H-1B extension even though it was filed a day or two late. However, it is up to the sole discretion of the reviewing officer. Most likely, his petition will be approved for consular processing.
