H1b Transfer & related risks


Recommended Posts


     Im currently on deputation to USA on H1(valid till Jun 2018, so far 1year of H1 status consumed) with a leading IT consulting firm (Company A).  Got a job offer from a leading Bank in USA (Company B) who can file new H1b petition/Transfer

1.Considering current scenario without H1B Premium processing, is it safe to start work with new employer on receipt? 
2. What are the risks to be taken care of & best ways to mitigate
3.Can the normal petition be upgraded to premium processing once it opens up again?
4. what needs to be done for my dependent's H4 (stamped till Jun 2018) after filing H1 transfer petition? any new H4 petition/stamping needed? If so, when
Thank you
