H-1B Transfer (60-day grace period)

Recommended Posts


My last job ended on June 15,2021 and i am currently on H-1B 60-day grace period. I was offered a new job this week and prospective employer initiated H-1B Transfer . Since the filing and premium processing takes time the employer proposed a start date of August 30,2021 .
My main concern is

  1. Is it legal to have a start date after 60 days (after August 15th) ?
  2. Is filing an H1B Transfer Petition before the grace period is good to go irrespective of start date?
  3. What status I will be on in that period of time? If I am not wrong h1b status won’t be active until I start the job.

Can someone please address my questions? Thank you in advance.

Your H1b petition is filed before the 60 day grace period so you are good.  Have you got a copy of your certified LCA?  what start date is mentioned on this LCA?  Your current status is - Pending H1b.
