H1b transfer during vacation


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I have a valid H1B Visa until August 2020 from previous employer, I  have an approved H1B petition until March 2021 from current Employer.  I recently got an offer from another company who is willing to sponsor, however I have travel plans until mid of February and willing to join right after the vacation.

Recently new company Attorney reached out to me saying that they can’t file H1B until I am in states, I was curious is that a general USCIS rule (I doubt that as my transfer going to be intended,  Can some one confirm?
Thanks in advance.
