H1 Transfer Denied

Recommended Posts


I applied for transfer of my H1b visa from employer A to B, which is denied. My current H1 visa is valid until 09/30/2019. 

While I am waiting receive the denial letter, I wanted to options available to me?

How long can I stay?

Can I find a new Employer who can sponsor my H1?

I was in a similar situation. I had to leave the country immediately as the lawyer suggested. There is a grace period of 7-10 days. But again that depends on if your I-94 is valid or not. If it is. Then you can stay for 60 days.

You have few options:

- Appeal or file a new petition with your exisiting employer

- Request your existing employer to put you up in another country then US

- Look for a new employer who can file. 

The good part is you would be under cap exempt (means no lottery)
