Hi
My H1 extension (3 yr extension) is expiring march 6. I a working for cognizant and i have not applied GC yet. The immigration team is telling me that they will file extension soon. I still have 3 more weeks. What if an RFE comes and if i get denial. In that case , can i apply for a new h1b immediately after denial if am within 240 day period.

Can i also apply for a h1b transfer petition now to some consultancies or other companies just to be on safer side. pls advice

Is this your first 3-yr H1b or are you already on extension? if you are already on extension, then you cannot file for further extension without I-140 approval. If this is your first extension, then you have to hurry. LCA will take 2 weeks and then your application should reach USCIS before your H1b expires.

yes bro. you should apply to some desi consultancy and do the following:

1. Get recruited (without any requirement / process) just because you are a potential candidate for a H-1B VISA
2. Shell out money for you H-1B application
3. Fake your experience and start submitting to various job portals
4. Optional: Lip sync interview
5. Get the job and apply for Green Card (coz you are a very high skilled person) and displace a genuinely high skilled person
6. Crib about backlog

Bonus: Get used to a constant fear for maintaining your legal stay in the US and get kicked out someday!

OR TRY to get a genuine company who sponsors you for your skills and have some peace of life!

As you are with Cognizant you are good, it's standard practice to apply in the last minute so that the employee is always tensed.!! Also CTS doesn't apply for GC, so you are good to get kicked off at the end of 6 years. Good luck.

IT consulting is not good anymore, join some US companies and you will be happy. USCIS issues multiple RFEs and denies H1B extensions even though you may have 20+ years of experience and good education.
