Old H1-B Extension from previous employer was revoked - what is the impact?

Recommended Posts

Hi, in my previous job in 2019, I got an I-140 approved and subsequently got H1-B extension approved for 3 years (till end of 2022). Later on I quit that job and found another one but I have been out of the country and not working on H1-B since end of 2019. Few days ago my H1-B extension from previous employer got revoked. I have a new job offer and chance of returning to US. What is the impact of old H1-B extension getting revoked? Also, with the new job offer should I just get a new H1-B transfer approved or any thing additionally as well?

The old employer was required by law to inform USCIS that you no longer work there. That results in revocation of the old H1. It has zero effect on you or on any new H1.  The new employer can file a cap-exempt H1 petition for you, and when it is approved you can get a new visa or travel with the old visa if it is still valid and a copy of the new approval notice.
