25 May H-1B Extensions Approved for Medical Residents
Our immigration law firm represents a major Hospital in Pennsylvania that employs over 10,000 individuals. As part of our practice we assist the Hospital in sponsoring medical residents for H-1B status. Due to certain timing issues, 5 medical residents needed a 6 day extension of H-1B status in order to complete their medical residency program with the Hospital. Our firm filed the H-1B extension petitions which were approved significantly in advance of the expiration date of the H-1B status. This provided the medical residents sufficient time to file another H-1B extension petition with new employers to continue their work authorized status in the United States.
