I-94 expired- Current employer filed extension - Can i switch employer on H1B

Recommended Posts


My I-94 expired on May 1st 2017 while my employer has filed for an extension under normal processing(as PP is stopped now). Now i got an offer from employer B for a full time position. Can employer B transferred my H1b even after my i-94 has expired or i have to wait till my petition gets approved?

Hello rahul1108,

                i was doing some research on this scenario. What i found is, it is better to wait until your current extension is approved. As the transfer is dependent on the current extension. If the extension is denied/revoked after you join the new employer you will be out of status for some time. So it is always good to have a valid I94 before trying to switch companies. Experts here can add more if needed.
