H1b Amendment in MSA

Recommended Posts

Wanted to know if should be doing the H1B amendment  or not

form client1 to client2 ...in my case 

 

In my case Both client1 & client2 are in the same MSA...

so wanted to know  if there will be  any documentation change or any amendment process?? 


USCIS website says:

When You Do NOT Need to File an Amended Petition

  • A move within an MSA: If your H-1B employee is moving to a new job location within the same MSA or area of intended employment a new LCA is not required. Therefore, you do not need to file an amended H-1B petition. However, you must still post the original LCA in the new work location within the same MSA or area of intended employment. For example, an H-1B employee moving to a new job location within the New York City MSA (NYC) would not trigger the need for a new LCA, but you would still need to post the previously obtained LCA at the new work location. This is required regardless of whether an entire office moved from one location to another within NYC or if just one H-1B employee moves from one client site to another within NYC.
