Part Time H1B

Recommended Posts

I am currently on working with Company A - full time H1 B. I am looking for a H1 transfer, below are my questions :

 

1) Do I need to file for a full time H1 only or can I just file for one part time H1 ? Meaning I will only work part time with one company. If this is a possibility, then how many hours are considered as part time work per week ?

 

I know one can file different part time h1's with more than one company but I am not aware if one can just file for a part time with one company ? 

 

2) If I file a full time H1 transfer - the max hours one can work on this is 40 hrs per week. Are there any specified number of minimum hours on a full time H1 ?

 

Any help on this is appreciated ...

Hi Priyal86, 

 

I have a question for you. Is the part time h1b your only visa right now? Someone told me that you need a full time h1b to stay in the country, so just checking since I want to apply for a part time h1b next year. Thank you!

OPT and CPT are part of the F1. A person can ONLY be in one status at a time, so it would be either F1 or H1. Both at the same time is not possible, by definition.

Thanks JoeF for clearing that doubt.

No, you don't need a full-time H1. You of course need to make enough money to actually survive here...
