Transfer H1-B with consular process status

Recommended Posts

Hello Sir,

I am with company A on L1B visa and they too have processed my H1-B last year stating consular process. Since H1B is approved with consular process, my status didn't changed. Due to organization changes I would be loosing my job in a month time.

  • Do I have option to amend my status and transfer my H1B to another employer?
  • Due to hold on premium process how is it going to affect my process?
  • If it is transferable, when could I start working with company B after initiating the transfer?

Could you please clarify above? Thanks in advance.

Thanks & Regards,

suk.

1. Yes, you can transfer.

2. You will get a receipt and you need to wait till it is approved.

3. Only after the petition is approved since it is a change of status.
