  • H-1 B

    I'm on a H1-B right now, by the end of january 2004 it will be the end of my first 3 years. Since I need to go back to my hometown for family reason and will probably have to stay overthere for at least aa year.
    Will I lose the 3 years remaining on my visa. Or can I renew it later?
    How does it work? The maximum stay on a H1-B is 6 years if I'm correct.
    Thanks for your help

      Hi.

      If you remain overseas for more than 1 year, any future sponsor employer may apply for an H-1B on your behalf and start the clock anew. This means that you would be entitled to another 6 year period in H-1B. The 6 year maximum in H-1b refers to continuous presence in H-1B status in the U.S. Therefore, if you leave, that continuous presence is broken. I hope to have been clear and helpful.
