H1B transfer before start date


Recommended Posts

I got my receipt on 18th April 2017 and am waiting for final approval or RFE whichever the case is.

My current employer (A) is not in very stable condition and might go out of business by October. 

In case I get my H1B approval with current employer, can another employer (B - which is a client of A and has LCA) apply for H1B transfer before October? If yes what are the processing times in that case and what reasons are valid and accepted for such transfers?

There is no rule about the duration of work for the H1 employer, just that you have to have started working with them.

But if the employer is unstable, the H1 may not even get approved. One of the things USCIS looks for is ability to pay the salary...
