NOIR on new H1b visa

Recommended Posts

Last Oct 2018, I received an update from my employer that my h1b visa petition was approved. On January 18, 2019 the USCIS sent a NOIR on my approved H1b visa petition. My employer told me that they are drafting a response for the NOIR. My question is can I find a new employer even if there is NOIR on my visa petition with my current employer or should I wait for the decision on my case before finding a new employer. Usually how long does it take for the USCIS to make a decision?

ask your employer to share the NOIR.

If its related to fraud/misrepresentation then you are in trouble and need to consult an attorney to formulate a strategy.

NOIR is just a notice of intention to revoke. It is not revoked yet. If you have worked on h1b for at least a few days and you have a valid i94, a new employer in theory can apply for change of employer H1b petition with i94 extension. Nobody knows about the timelines, depends on case to case.
