H1B extension using I140 from OLD employer

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have completed 7 years in USA and having an approved PERM/I140 valid till March 2020 from Employer A.
Now, I'm getting an offer from Employer B. Can anyone clarify the below questions which will help in taking the decision, 

1) I have almost stayed 1.5 years after I140 approval, still employer A can able to revoke my I140?
2) Employer B can able to file H1B extension using approved I140 from employer A  without starting the PERM processing again?
3) How many times, Employer B can able to file H1B extension using approved I140 from employer A?
4) At least, when employer B should start the PERM processing in my case?

Please advise

1. He will be able to withdraw it, but would not restrict you to keep the priority date or to get extensions based on it from a new employer.


3.No limit, until the priority date is current.

4.there isn't a "atleast" here.

Thanks for the details.

For Point 1 #  If the employer A withdraw the I140, we can't file for the H1B extension from Employer B correct?

Also, any documents we have to collect from the current employer before moving?

Hi Team,

Thanks for all the clarification. Adding few more question to the above case,

I'm working for Employer A and Employer B is starting the H1b Transfer. As per the current wait time, the transfer is taking 3 to 6 months, so I'm waiting for the transfer approval before joining the Employer B. 

1) Joining the Employer B with short period left ( 6 to 8 months on I140) and they agreed for raising the extension after joining the company.  Please let me know is there any issue in this approach ?

2) How we will come to know if Employer A revoke the I140 ?

3) Once the H1B transfer is approved. How many days we can work with Employer A?

Please advice.
