I have a question about 8th year H1 extension.

Based on pending LC, I got 7th year H1-B extenstion. Now,I have an approved LC and just applied 140. Planning to go for consular processing.
If my 140 doesn't get approved, can I apply for 8th year H1-B extension?

I appreciate your respose,
Thanks,

------ apply 8th year H1 while I-140 is still pending

If your I 140 does not get approved you can not extend 8th year and you loose your H1 status immediately.

Your 7th year got approved only on the LC/I 140 is pending.

Good Luck.

desi145 :
to make it clear

1.if your I-140 is still pending you can file for 8th year h1

2.if I-140 is denied then you cannot file H1 extension as the base for H1 extension has gone
