H1B transfer possible? , currently visa extension is in progress with receipt number. in H1B : Portability Issues Posted March 10, 2020 · Report reply OK thanks for reply. Meanwhile. Can i get confirmation and idea on this : " Do we need valid I94 to transfer H1b to new employer. or Is it H1b needs to be transfer before valid active I94 date." Current employer is fine to file extension. Rather want to know if i go with Transfer since i have offer. (Do i need to do before valid active I94 date) Does it mean after I94 expiry transfer cases is good to go and recommeded with consular processing.
