Returning to India after H1B visa expiration: Can my employer file an extension?


New Member
In 2021, I was fortunate enough to have my H1B visa selected through the lottery. I arrived in the USA in August 2022 and my visa is valid until September 2024.

However, due to a family matter, I need to return to India in September 2024. I will ask my employer not to extend my visa but I will continue working for the same employer from India.

After spending one year in India (by 2025), can my employer file for an extension? If so, what is the process for that?
