H1B VISA Transfer - Any time limit to join new Employer after H1B Transfer approval?


Recommended Posts

I am currently working for Company A on an H1B. Company B had filed my H1B transfer, which is approved on 01/23/2020 by USICS with a validity of nearly 3 yrs.

I am still working with Company A, will join with new employer Company B in 2 weeks. On e-approval, I see Starting Validity Date is on 11/18/2019, as it already past 2+ months. Can I Join with new employer Company B in two weeks?

Is there any legal time limit from date of H1B Transfer approval to joining with new Employer Company B?

Thanks Much!

I feel you can join and start for Company B maybe 3 to 4 weeks from 01/23/2020  but not very long time since at one point of time if you do notjoin B they will let USCIS know that you do not join them and revoke H1B.

This confuses me .. On e-approval, I see Starting Validity Date is on 11/18/2019

This is not legal advice just my personal feeling
