My I-140 was approved more than 180 days ago, and I then moved to a new employer. The company that filed my I-140 will soon be acquired by a larger entity. Will this acquisition prevent me from extending H1B status beyond 6 years?


Ordinarily, an acquisition of the company that filed the I-140 would not impact the beneficiary’s ability to continue to extend H1B status based on that approved I-140. (16.Sep.2021)
