H1 transfer question before H1start date


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

i am on OPT currently and been laid off by the present employer, the issue now is I have a H1 approved visa which is starting from april 30th 2012 with this company and requested them to run my pay roll until may 4th just to get this H1 visa valid and to transfer to a new client.

few questions on this

1. What if I get a position before april 30th can I start working for this new client while still my old company runs pay roll?

2. Should I wait until apr30th to work ? or can I transfer H1 visa even before this date?

Can any one please help me what steps I have to take so that I will not fall in out of status.

Hi thanks for reply

Yes I have a approved notice of H1 so can I transfer now after april 30th? I will be working with present employer until may4th. There is a company who is ready to do transfer so my question is should it be a new H1 any how? or can it be H1 transfer?
