Hello All,

 

I had completed my Masters in USA and was working on OPT. My employer filed H1B for me and it got approved. I have the approved H1B notice.

 

Can I change my employer before October 1st??  I am currently on Cap-Gap extension valid upto Septmeber 30th. I have also applied for OPT  STEM extension and it is curently on Initial Review.

 

My 1st OPT is expired and my H1B starts from October 1st. So can I change employer??

 

Thanks in advance!!

Thank for your reply. 

 

1. Iif new employer files a H1B petition ,then this is a H1B transfer right ?

 

2. Can H1B transfer be done before H1B actually getting started from October 1st.

 

3. Will there be any issues during visa stamping?

 

Thanks

1. There is nothing called transfer. It is a cap exempt H1B petition.

2. Yes.

3. No, from what details you have provided.
