Is there a new rule coming that would prevent people from extending H1B status beyond 6 years?


There is no indication of such a rule being proposed at this time. Further, the ability to extend H1B status beyond 6 years is partially based on a law, rather than a regulation. Therefore, to get rid of this rule would likely require that Congress intervene. (18.Dec.2017)
