Recommended Posts


I am on H4 visa now.I want to apply new H1.I have a question regarding this.

If i get a job, can i work immediately ? or do i need to wait until i get approve my H1 ? do i need to go back to home country for stamping ?

I heard, after getting approval and stamping then only valid for work ? is it true ? please clarify my questions..

Thanks in advance..

Generally, individuals who are subject to the numerical H1B cap can only request a start date of October 1 or later. If the individual has already been counted against the cap and has time remaining out of the 6 years of H1B time allowed, then an immediate start date may be requested and the individual may begin working only once the H1B petition is approved. Please schedule a consult with a qualified immigration attorney to discuss the specific facts relating to your case and to determine whether you are subject to the H1B cap and when you may begin working for the H1B employer.
