H1 Transfer Reg.

Recommended Posts


I am working for Company A and travelled to India with my family in April for my visa stamping (got the stamped visa till Dec-2024). Right now, I am working from India and plan to travel back US by end of July. I also have my I-140 with employer A which was approved in Nov-2021 (completed 180 days with company A after 140 approval).

I got an offer from Company B and planned to transfer my H1B visa. So, I have the below questions at my end, could you please clarify on it.

  1. Whether Company B can file my H1 transfer while I am in India ? Also H4 filing for my dependents.

  2. If so, once my transfer is approved, can I join company B from India and travel US with company A’s stamped visa along with Company B’s approved petition ?


Once my transfer is approved, I will keep working for company A and travel US then join Company B after 15-20 days.

Please let me know if you see any other options other than the above

Company B should be able to transfer your H1b and you should be able to travel to India with Company B's documents.

Do your dependents have H4 stamping?  I dont think you have to file transfer for your dependents.  

Make sure there is enough validity in your passport for a new I-94 stamp at immigrations on your way back to US.
