  • Changing employer before H-1B starts

    Hi,
    Greetings!
    I'm currently on F1-OPT till 18th August,2014. I will be on cap gap from 18th Aug- 30th Sep, 2014.
    I have my H-1B approved with the company A (I'm currently working here).
    I have an offer from company B to where I want to move.

    Company B is going to file a H-1B transfer with regular processing. They said that I can start working as soon as they get the receipt of filing.

    In my case since I will be on cap gap for 2 months? Is it okay to start at company B just with the filing receipt?
    If not should I go for a premium processing?

    Thanks in advance!

      You should speak with an immigration attorney regarding the above scenario. Although you can work for Company B under F-1 OPT because of CapGap, CapGap may be considered cancelled if your H-1B with Company A is revoked, which they might do once you tell them you are leaving them.
