How much time does it take to get your h1b extended? My h1b (first 3 years) expires in Sep 2021. I am thinking of switching job in Jan/Feb and Wondering if that would give me enough time to get H1B extended through the new employer.

You will have to get it transferred to the new employer and that should take care of the extension.

So when the H1B is transferred, would they also increase the validity??

I was in the same boat. New employee filed for extension and got it approved till 2023.

So they filed transfer first and the. Extension? And you got a full 3 years on extension?
