USCIS Changes H Extension Review

November 1, 2017

Recently USCIS announced that it would adjudicate H-1B extension requests as if it were the first application. At the moment OISS does not foresee any additional risk or delay in getting H-1B extension applications approved, but it may take 6 months or more to identify trends in how USCIS reviews these applications. Please speak to your OISS advisor if you have questions about this change.
