Your Immigration Questions Answered by VisaPro.

Here, you will find detailed answers to many of most common immigration questions.

20.What is the difference between my H-1B visa and H-1B Status?
  
  Being granted H-1B status and getting your visa stamped are two different things that are often confused. Getting H-1B approval implies that you are authorized to work in the U.S. and getting visa stamped implies that a visa had been affixed to your passport that authorized to seek entry to the U.S.

Usually H-1B authorizations are issued for a period of three years and the date stamped on your passport would be close to this period.

21.How do I get extension for my H-1B visa?
  
  H-1B extension is the extension of authorization to work in the U.S but it is not the actual visa. In order to travel outside the U.S you need to get your visa stamped based on the new extension.

22. What is the AC21 legislation on H-1B visa?
   
  The American Competitiveness in the 21st Century Act of 2000, which became effective on October 17, 2000, permits extension of H-1B status past the six-year limit where a labor certification has been pending for 365 days or longer, regardless of whether or not a Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker, has been filed, or where a Form I-140 has been pending for 345 days or longer.
