H1B Transfer

Recommended Posts


I am currently working full-time with Employer A and contractor with Employer B as Software Developer. Recently my H1B is approved with Employer A from Oct'18 to Oct'19 and are ready to file my GC on EB3. On top of this, my Employer B offered me full time. I am in dilemma with a lot of questions about whether to accept the offer or not. Can you please help me to take a decision.

1. What would be the maximum period taken for H1B transfer?

2. As I have approved H1B only for one year how will my transfer and extension be impacted? Can the transfer and extension go parallelly?

3. Can I go to India between June-August for my marriage during these processes?

4. When the H1B transfer is in progress can I go to India for visa stamping in Jan?

Thanks a lot in advance.

1. Unless you work for the original sponsor the H1 cannot be transferred.

2. PP is very much restricted and hence petition approval will take months

3. Under the circumstances stay with A and sort out your JOB and Marriage as an initial step.
