Transfer of New H1 before October (Change of Status from OPT)


Recommended Posts



I'm Currently working on OPT EAD which is valid till next march. My H1B application is picked in the lottery this year and currently being processed.


Now my doubt is if i come to know that my H1B is approved before October 1st.

- can i initiate a H1B transfer as soon as i know my H1B is approved

- or do i need to wait till October 1st to initiate the transfer.


The reason i'm asking this is i got a full time opportunity. As i'm on EAD i can join them but need to go through the lottery next year one more time.


so once my H1B is approved i want to use H1B transfer and take the full time opportunity.


Please advice me of any available options.
