H1B Approved - Laid off - Last day of work is Oct 31st 2019

Recommended Posts


My company applied for my H1B by this April and got picked in lottery and got approved by end of June 2019. I got laid off. My last day of work is Oct 31st. Employer supports my H1B till Oct 31st. My questions:

1. Will I be able to look for jobs in till Dec 31st 2019 in H1B status?

2. After December 2019, if I get conventerted to H4 (as my spouse is in H1B), and later when I get job in 2020, will my new employer can just transfer my H1B? Is is like normal H1b transfer from employer to employer or is it different as I will be on H4 by that time? or what is the process and how long will it take on average for transfers?

Thanks in advance

1. By 60 days you need to find new job and apply for H1B after Oct 31. I guess

2. I feel H1B transfer is not possible since by 2020 you H1B will be gone. I guess you need to go to lottery

I might be wrong.
