I hear a lot if folks are getting denials on H1B extensions or client location change and are being asked to repatriate in a week. Is this true?

client location changed, got denied and sent back home..? thats new.

Yup, I heard about this case this week. I’m just appalled. Is the the situation really that bad?

well as long as your i94 is still valid, any rejected extension or amendment should not make you out of status. you will only be out of status if your “base” h1b is expired.

but yeah, it’s pretty dire out there nonetheless

Oh... so if an extension gets denied one can still stay back till the last date of the existing i94?

i am 99% sure but please check with your lawyer

Make sure extensions are filed with sufficient time in hand...denial after expiry will result in immediate out of status

True for service sector companies who don’t refile after rejected. In Big 4 - they refile immediately within 60 Days grace. As long as your I94 is valid - you are not supposed to go even if your case gets rejected. You are supposed to get a new filling by same employer or by a diff employer ...

Folks who got visa stamping/reval done in Mexico - how did you pay the fees before taking the appointment?
