H1B transfer with approved I-140


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I'm on my 10th year in H1B with employer A. Also, I have an approved I-140 with the same employer, and haven't applied for 485 due to the dates are not current yet for my case.


I'm planning to switch the employer and have concerns with my visa transfer and GC.


  1. Since, my H1B extension beyond 6 years is based on GC, is it possible that I can transfer my H1B visa to another employer?
  2. If it is possible, my understanding is that my GC will become invalid and need to start the process again with new employer as GC is for future employment. Can I retain the original priority date?

Appreciate your expert guidance.
