  • H-1 B Amendment

    Hello friends. I am on valid H-1 B visa expiring in Sept, 2015. Right now, I am working as a contractor for a different client than the one for which my H-1 was filed with. My H-1 B was filed stating as an in-house project with my employer. I need to travel to India in Jan, 2015. Do you think I need to file for H-1 amendment as I changed my client, I am concerned about any issues during the port of entry to the USA.
    Please advice me if H-1 B amendment is required for my case.
    Would there be any issues related to change in end client at the port of entry.
    Thank you

      Your employer MUST file an H-1B amendment immediately if you are now working at a client site but were only supposed to work in-house previously. This is a material change to the terms of your H-1B which USCIS must be informed about. Also, this should be approved before you travel. While this is not an issue that may come up at a port of entry, it is very well a problem that can come up in a site visit. Also, when you leave the U.S. and enter the U.S. using the H-1B visa and your H-1B approval notice, you are basically telling immigration that you are returning to the U.S. to resume the work as per your H-1B petition.

          By law you are required to file an amendment when you change end client.

                As per law it required but my friend travelled India in June without amendment even if he changed the end client ( he has valid visa so no questions while entering into US).

                  Amendment must be done when there is a change in location or when there is any significant change in job.. This is the duty of ur petitioner to do. Sometimes USCIS does site inspections and expects an amendment to H1B to be filed otherwise they are entitled to revoke the H1 giving rise to larger problems.

                  Please refer to uscis.gov website for further information

                    1. Yes, you have to file an amendment
                    2. There shouldn't be any issues if you have all the paperwork

                      If your end client and location is different then you need to amend your H1B if you go for stamping but if you have valid visa ,without any issues you can enter US !

                          If you have filed amendment, how long did it take to get it approved?

                          Thanks!
