H1B Transfer from Profit Organization to Non Profit Organization

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Currently I am working for Employer A which is a profit organization  and my H1B visa is approved thru Lottery processing and planning to make a transfer to new employer B which is a Non-Profit Organization. 

In future, if I want to switch back to any Profit Organization, can I do that or are they any restrictions in doing it? Should I undergo lottery processing again and apply for visa?

What happens to my GC processing? Non-profit organization will file my GC and after I140 approval, if I am planning to make a move to profit organization, what is the process of doing it? Can I transfer my GC as well? 

Please let me know.

You H1 will not be a problem, you can transfer back to a for profit organization without going thought the lottery again. I am not sure about the GC.

Yes, Since the first time was a for profit company you can now work for Non-profit or for profit organization.

Do you have any idea about GC process with Non-profit organization? Can I transfer my approved I140 to profit organization?

I think that shouldn't be a problem. I could be wrong.

An I-140 is never transferred. The new company would have to start the process from scratch. You can use the PD from the old I-140.

Thanks for your reply. So, can I extend my H1b based on PD from old I-140 correct? Or can I extend only after new employer files my GC? Moreover it works same for Non Profit or Profit correct? No change in the process?

You can extend the H1 indefinitely if an I-140 was approved for 180 days.

The PD only has meaning for a GC process.

And there is no difference with the type of employer.
