H1b amendment and h1b transfer at same tiime

Recommended Posts


I'm working on H1-B for my current employer A for the last 1 year. I've pay stubs for the entire period till today. Recently, my client location got changed & we moved to a different address within the same county. My employer A has applied for H1B amendment petition and we are awaiting for receipt number in the next few days. 

Now, employer B is willing to recruit me and is planning to file for my H1B transfer after a week. By that time, USCIS might have got the previous amendment petition & all be in progress. Both will collide with each other if they are since both are premium processing. My question is -

Can Employer B file for H1B transfer while the amendment is in progress? Because I won't have the I797 for the amendment while they transfer.

Or, should we wait for 2 more months for amendment to be done and my employer A to issue 2 month pay stubs for the new client location city?

How does status get determined in this case?
