H4 to H1B Transfer

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


    I have been in US since 2015 with H4 EAD. My H1B got picked in lottery in 2016. I was in India in 2016 when a consultancy filed my H1B and returned back with H4 status . So  I have never used my H1B it till now. I have been working till now with my H4 EAD.

Is it possible for me to use that H1B with cap-exempt if another company provides me a job ?


Please let me know the possibilities since H4EAD approvals is taking time now. I want to work with my H1B .

That H1 is gone if you didn't get an H1 visa or worked on the H1.

@Zodiac System will it work even if i change the employer ? I have never used my H1B till now with my employer who sponsored me .

It is worth a try with an experienced employer/attorney.  Good Luck

@Zodiac System I talked to attorney and few companies whom even checked with their attorneys, I can not use that h1b now with cap exempt since I haven't used it before


Oh ok... I once was listening to the video of an attorney on YouTube and he said that he had done it.  But dont have more details on it.
