H1B transfer - out of status

Recommended Posts


I was laid off from my employer on 14th June 2019. I've found a new employer who submitted my H1B petition with premium processing today July 30th 2019. My 60 day grace period on H1B ends on 14th August. My start date with the new employer is 19th August. My H1B visa is valid till 2021. I have the following questions:

1. If i get the approval before 14th August and start with the new employer on 19th August will I be 'out of status' between 14th August to 19th August? Will it be an issue?

2. In case I get an RFE, how long can I stay in the country without accumulating unlawful presence?

3. I have a paystub gap of 1.5 months. My new employer has submitted my last paystub with my relieving letter. Can this cause an RFE or issues with H1B transfer?


Thank you
