Documents Required for H1B Extension

This USCIS H1B extension documents checklist can be used for H-1B transfer or amendment as well within USA.

If you are looking for Visa stamping in US Embassy, then you should follow the H1B Visa Interview Documents.

  1. Form I-129 Application for non-immigrant H1B worker by Employer

    1. Un-expired LCA from past H1B can be re-used but the total H1B term will be reduced by LCA validity.
  3. Most Recent I94
    1. Check last approved H1B i797A for attached paper i94.
    2. Or if you last entered USA by any port of entry, download i94 from CBP website.
    3. Or if you got your i94 extended after passport renewal at any Land Border like Laredo, TX or San Diego, use your paper i94 copy.
  4. Most Recent Entry to US Immigration Stamp – Check US immigration stamp in your Passport.
  5. Last 3 Pay Stubs – Pay Slips or Salary Statement.
    • Last 3 bi-weekly pay stubs are fine to prove your maintenance of H1B status in case of H1B extension or transfer.
    • Legally, you can file for H1B transfer immediately after your H1B lottery approval on Oct 1, but, it is strongly recommended to at-least work for sponsoring employer for at-least 1 day to avoid RFE.
