H1B 60 day grace period more than once

Recommended Posts


I need some help regarding how the H1B grace period can be used? Is it once per H1B petition/once per employer or once in lifetime? Last time when I switched employers I had to use about 45 days of grace period and then switched to a new employer after 45 days of quitting. 

Now I'm in a situation, where I might have to take the 60 grace period again as I'm switching to a different employer. Please advice on whether I get to take the 60 day grace period again since its a new employer.

The 60-day grace period is once per validation period, irrespective of the length of validation- 2 months or 1 year or 3 years.
