The 7th Year Extension Of H-1B For Labor Certification Applicants

 Dr. William: 

Do you know what is the status of 7th year extension for H-1B, for labor certification applicants?


Answer:

The President is anticipated to sign the Department of Justices Authorization Bill, which includes 7th-year H-1B extension. The new law will let anyone whose labor certification application is pending for 365 days or longer will be able to apply for extension of H-1B status beyond the 6-year limit.

This 7th-year H-1B extension provision amends the AC 21 Act provision that requires filing of I-140 petition in the case of labor certification cases before one can apply for the 7th year extension.
