H1B transfer after current H1 expires


Recommended Posts



Please shed some light on the following scenario.


The current H1 status is valid until Sep 30th 2014. Applied for an extension and received H1Breceipt.


Lets say we get a RFE after current H1B expires (Sep 30th) .During this time can we transfer the H1 to a different company? or is the candidate considered out of status and need to apply for a new H1?


If new H1 is needed will that application come under regular H1 quota? If yes , does it mean he cannot shift to a different company until april give the current year quota is full? or wait for the H1 extension petetion is approved?


Please let me know.
