View Full Version : Gap between previous H1B VISA expiry date and new H1B extension dates

07-16-2016, 08:02 AM

My H1B VISA expired on Sep 30, 2015. and extension was filed in Aug 2015.
and received the approved H1B extension in Feb 2016, with valid from Oct 1, 2016 to Mar 2018.

after receiving the extension approval I have no status from Feb 2015, is it legal to stay in US ?

Note: actually I was in assumption of valid dates are from Oct 1, 2015. It looks like my employer messed up with dates or dates are wrongly entered by vendor/USCIS.

Will this be a problem for my current status and in future for extensions and GC process?
