Hello and welcome to Just Answer. No attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site, the answers are for general information. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.

The answer to your question of how long will the H 1B be renewed for after an I-40 approval. It is usually granted for 1 year, but it is often approved for 3 years. It really depends on what the employer may have requested.

The USCIS has discretionary authority to approve an H1B petition for a time period which it believes the employer will employ the beneficiary in the capacity and under the terms of the H1B petition. For example, a project may be of only 1 year duration, or it can be a three year need.

I hope this helps.
