  1. Help me understand, even if the H1B is transferred to a new employer before its stamped, they have to file new H1B application to transfer the H1B right? So why it cant be transferred?
  2. Can you please let me know what happens if they inform in September or October 1st?
  3. I was laid off in July 2019 from Company A and got my H1B approved in consular processing and its not activated or stamped. As, I am no longer with the employer who filed my H1B so I can not activate or get H1B stamped. Company A has not withdrawn my H1B yet and mentioned that they will withdraw H1B before or on October 1st. I am currently enrolled in school and on F1 visa. Questions: Can H1B approved in consular processing (not stamped or activated) transferred to a new employer before October 1st? If I find a new employer in next 2 months let’s say in August- September 2019, can a new employer file an H1B transfer using Company A I-797B approval notice so that my H1B will be transferred to new employer before October 1st? Or do I have to apply H1B again in lottery next year on April 1st? 2. Is it possible to do transfer before October 1st ? Are there any risks or challenges that I need to be aware of? 3. What are the chances of getting H1B approved again after the transfer by new employer? 4. If H1B transfer is possible, then how much time does it take to transfer from Company A to Company B? 5. Is premium processing available for H1B transfer? Please advice
  4. I was laid off in July 2019 from Company A and got my H1 approved under consular. I am currently enrolled in school and on F1 visa until December 2019 and my DSO submitted ticket to SEVIS to update the record from the change of status to consular processing which will not terminate my F1 on October 1st. As previously change of status was on my record incorrectly even though I filed H1B in consular processing which would have terminated my F1 automatically and university mentioned to ask the employer to withdraw the H1B as well. Questions: My employer has not withdrawn the H1B yet and wondering will it impact my F1 status if the employer submits the withdrawal to USCIS on October 1st, 2019? Does the withdrawal needs to be done earlier or it doesn’t matter? If the H1B withdrawal is submitted before October 1st and still in process on October 1st, does it impact my F1 status? How long does it take to withdraw after the employer submits the request to USCIS? How do I get notified that the withdrawal is completed? Do I get notification or letter and from whom? Is there any action that I need to take meanwhile? Please advice
  5. Hi there, I got my H1B approved from Company A in consular processing and it's not activated. As my employment was terminated in July 2019. I am no longer employed at Company A and cant activate or get H1B stamp as I am not with the employer who filed it. My employer mentioned that they will withdraw H1B before or on October 1st, 2019. I am currently on F1 visa till December 2019. Questions- 1. If I find a job within a month let’s say in August 2019, can new employer file an H1B transfer using Company A I-797B approval notice (H1b not activated or stamped) so that my H1B will be transferred to the new employer before October 1st? Also, as I am on F1 visa and currently enrolled in school, and my DSO mentioned that on October 1st my F1 will automatically terminate due to H1B valid date starts on October 1st (on I-797B) and mentioned to withdraw the H1B before October 1st to prevent F1 termination. I am confused if this is correct? As my H1B was filled under consular processing and which means it will not be activated until get stamp and re-enter the USA. 2. What should I do in this case, is my DSO correct that my F1 will auto-terminate based on the valid date on I-797B approval notice even though my H1 was filled in consular processing and my F1 should not be terminated on October 1st? 3. How long does it take to withdraw the H1B application ( what is the timeline) after employer submits the withdraw and when does USCIS withdraws the H1B and notifies? Please advice. Thanks in advance
