H1B Transfer

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

My H1B is valid until Sept 2018. I have an opportunity with a new employer. Under the current conditions, how safe is it to move to a different employer? My I140 is approved and has been more than 180 days.

Should my new employer file for Green Card and H1 transfer at the same time? 

What are my options if my old employer revokes my I140, if i start working at the new employer with just the receipt ?

Please advice.

Thanks!

Approved I140 more than 180 days can be used to extend H1 beyond 6 years even if the employer revokes it after 180 days. Any employer can use this approved I140 for H1 extension beyond 6 years.

Approved I140 with current employer is required only when your priority date is close and to apply for EAD.
