H4 to H1 transfer to new employer


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

My wife is currently in US on H4.

Our consultancy has applied for her H1 via consular processing and is approved.

We have not yet applied for COS.

The consultancy haven't provided the i797 to us.

We the have the receipt no with us. We can see the petition as approved in USCIS site.

Meanwhile she has secured a full time position in another company.

Can we initiate a H1 transfer with just the receipt number?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you aa and aa for you replies.

Just to confirm, my wife is still in H4 and have not started working in new H1.

What I want to know is if I can go ahead with Consular processing with COS with the new company. We still not have started the Consular processing with COS with the current company.
