Could you please advise me on below quires

Currently I am working on L1B Visa which is valid till Nov-2016

1. I am planning to apply H1B in April 2015 thru new employer, the new employer interested to apply my H1B thru COS (Change of status). As per my understanding if my H1B getting approved then my status will automatically change after Oct – 1st 2015 (i.e. L1B to H1B) and in this situation I have to resign from my current company. 

2. Now my concern is – suppose If I got H1B approval from new employer maybe in July/August, and then my current employer will ready to transfer my H1B from new employer. So is it possible to transfer my H1B into current employer before Oct – 1st, although it is already filed with change of status(COS) by new employer ?.

Hi Jairichi,

 

thank you for your reply. But I may not have conveyed my question clearly, so let me try to clarify.

 

In point 2 above, my question is  - whether I can transfer my H1b petition from the new employer back to my current employer before October?, IF the new employer also filed a Change of Status when he filed for a new H1b in April 2015.

 

It is not my intention to start work under the new H1b until it takes effect in October 2015 of course, but to simply transfer the H1b petition from new employer to the current employer.
