Hi, I had an H1B Consular Processing approved in 2018 along with my F1 Visa. I did not activate it till 2021 since my F1 was expiring. Further I activated it by filling a CoS instead of travelling to India because of the Covid related travel issues.
I was surprised to find that my H1B NIV date moved on Fragomen, which is the firm used by my company for immigration filing. That is, my max-out date on the H1B Visa is in 2027, 6 years from the date of activation.
In contradiction, I had been informed by Fragomen in 2018 that the H1B max-out date does not change even I activated my H1B late.
I am confused. Does anyone know the policy on this?
