Hello All,

  • F1:  Got Stamped  in  April 2014
  • H1-B:  Approved in 2014 - expires in Sep 2017(Unused) from employer A

I entered US on F1 visa in Aug, 2014 and completed my Masters. Recently, I got approved STEM extension on March,2017 and working as full time for employer B. As I have approved H1 form employer A, can I transfer my H1 from employer B and apply for COS to H1 after using my STEM OPT at-latest 1 yr(till 2018). I heard I can use approved H1 within 6 yrs from approved date.

If Yes, what should I need to do before Sep 2017 to secure my H1.

I sincerely appreciate your help.

Thank you.

You need to get in touch with a good attorney and find out about the details.
