Have a job with company A. Applied for H1B extension after 1st three years but got denial letter. Company B made me an offer. Will that be treated as an H1B extension application or as a fresh H1B? H1B 6 year period ends in Nov 2017. Was picked in H1B lottery in 2011.
The company's immigration counsel would file an H1B change of employer petition requesting extension of stay.
if you are still within your current H1B validity dates and you are employed by Employer A the extension will be granted. Otherwise it will be approved H1B petition only. With remainder time on your H1B you are not again subject to the cap.
