Need for an H1B Amendment

Recommended Posts

Dear Sir/Madam,

I have a question regarding the need for filing an H1 amendment in my case.

Query -

If my client changes from A to B and my work location also gets changed, but my new work location is going to be within 25 miles from current work location. My current work location is in Charlotte, NC.

If my new client's (Client B) work location is also within same (MSA - metropolitan statistical area), in that case will I require to file an H1 amendment as my client will be changed or its not required as it still falls under same MSA ?

 

Thank You,

Gopakumar

It doesn't hurt would have been my opinion pre-2017, but given current times (& rate of rejections) not worth the risk, unless you are going for stamping (and need to carry a new client letter), or there is a spot check that has caused issues. There is an online memo that states it maybe allowed, but that's always interpreted different ways by different attorneys. 

Ps: If your salary &/or title has changed, you should surely file for amendment.
