You need H1 amendment.

USCIS people should be able to feed your LCA address to find you and to meet you.

Now, decide yourself if amendment is needed or not.

Can you please check this url http://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/FactSheet62/whdfs62j.htm

 

they were saying it is not required?any inputs on this?

 

If the employer requires the H-1B worker to move from one worksite to another worksite within a geographic area of intended employment, must the employer obtain an LCA for each worksite within that area of intended employment?

No. The employer need not obtain a new LCA for another worksite within the geographic area of intended employment where the employer already has an existing LCA for that area. However, while the prevailing wage on the existing LCA applies to any worksite within the geographic area of intended employment, the notice to workers must be posted at each individual worksite, and the strike/lockout prohibition also applies to each individual worksite.

You moved from one state to another state, so I guess you need to have H1 amendment.

Why are you worried about this?? Is your employer not willing to do the amendment?

Rahul412:it does not  depend on state it depends on Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) so both city's are within Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) .
