H1b transfer after 9 years, approved I-140


Recommended Posts

Hello - I am currently on h1b visa with a company which started out in 2004 and have my I-140 approved. In 2010, I ran out of my 6 years of h1b but was given another 3 years of extension since my I-140 is approved. My current h1b expires in September 2014.

 

I am looking to switch jobs to another company. 

 

1. Can my new employer file for h1b transfer if I switch jobs before September 2014? 

 

2. With a new employer, will I still continue to get 3 years of h1b extensions since my I-140 is approved. 

 

 

Thanks,

D

1. Yes, as long as I-140 is not revoked by current employer.

2. Yes.
