I was told I am eligible for up to six years of H1B time. However, my petition was only approved for three years. Does this mean there is a problem with my case?


No, this is perfectly normal. An individual typically is limited to up to 6 years of H1B time. Generally, however, an H1B petition will not be approved for more than 3 years. (24.Jan.2024)
