H1-B transfer with I-94 valid till 2017

Recommended Posts



I have an approved I-797 from Company A that started on October 1st, 2014 and the I-94 accompanying it has an expiry date of August 2017. When Company B files for an H-1 transfer for me, can they only file for a 'Change of Employer application' without a 'Request for extension of stay', since my I-94 is valid for 2 more years? Or do they still need to file for a 'Request for extension to stay'? I am trying to escape the latest (bizarre) notification from USCIS that suspended the use of Premium Processing for H-1B 'extension of stay' petitions. I absolutely need to get my application under Premium Processing and there is no clarity about which applications will be exempt from this new rule. Will this new rule also impact 'Change of Employer' applications too? And can I apply only under 'Change of Employer'?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
