H1Premium processing, liad off from L1b job


Recommended Posts


I'm currently working on  L1-b visa and got laid off last month. My last working day with my current employer ends in the next 7 days. 

Meanwhile, the H1b premium for RFE response is filed from the employer today and may get the result in the next 15 days.


My question is, If I get H1-b approval after my exit date with my current employer, can I stay in the US and search for a new job based on H1-b

or will my H1b become invalid as I will not be working with my current employer when my H1-b is approved?


Thanks in advance for any help I can get!

You have 60 days time after getting laid off to find another job.  Your Approved H1b (expected very soon), will help you to get a transfer to another employer.  Your current employer will withdraw your current H1b approval (once it is approved, as required by law).  When does your I-94 expire?

My I-94 expires on April-2022
