  • H1B Visa approved. Is it possible to change employer even before travelling to US?

    Hi,

    I had my H1B visa approved with Employer 'A' last year. I have not yet traveled to US.

    If I want to change employer 'B', can i transfer the H1B also?

    Or do I have to get any approval from Employer A ?

    Can my employer 'A' can cancel my H1B ?


    regards,

        If you have been approved for H-1B, you should be able to transfer to a new employer. If you are abroad, then you are eligible as long as your H-1B was approved within the last 6 years or you were in H-1B status within the last 6 years.
        Do you have any proof that your H-1B was approved, or even a receipt number? Did you get stamping done already? It will be very difficult for Employer B to prove you are cap-exempt if they cannot submit some type of proof that your H-1B was approved. You may have to file a Freedom of Information Act request with USCIS to gain information.
        It may be a good idea to speak with an immigration attorney. You can visit here to speak with a qualified immigration lawyer: http://consultattorney.visapro.com/.

          H1B visa stamped recently.

          Hi,

          thanks lisaanderson,

          I had my H1B visa stamped recently.

          Hope I am eligible to transfer H1B to employer B without any issues.

          Thanks...
