H1B extension after leaving US

Hi all,

I’m hoping to get some help on my situation.

I lost my job due to Covid-19 and my last employment has ended on May 22 this year. I left the US before my 60-day grace period ended, and am now in my home country (Korea), even though my husband is still in the states… I have a potential job offer in the States, but with the Trump’s EO & Covid-19 situation, I’m not sure if I can still use my remaining H1B term for extension? Currently my H1B expiration date is until June 2021 and I only used 3.5 years out of 6 year in H1B in total. I really appreciate your help in advance. Thank you!

You can definitely use your H1B time that you have not used. If you have valid US visa stamping in passport and you have job offer and get approval from USCIS, then you can go to US.

Kumar, Thank you so much for your response. Hope you stay safe!
