H1b transfer

Posted: 22 March 2013 - 11:24 AM

I have a question on transfer on H1b visa. My employer will be filing new h1 on April 1st in premium. If I have an approved (but not active) petition by June, can I transfer my petition to new employer? Although I understand that even the transferred petition will not be active till October 1st.

Did you find out any more information on this?

I am in a similar position - I have my H1B, processed, approved, in the passport. But, it's obviously not active until Oct 1st, and also not necessarily with an employer I want to stay with / work for due to changes in employment terms and start dates etc.

This is my first H1B. Can I enter the country on a tourist visa. Apply for other jobs, and submit a H1B transfer without ever taking up employment with Company A?

Any advise would be great. Thanks.

Before you can transfer your H1b to a new employer B, you must first have worked for your original employer A who filed the visa petition for you.

Most say you have to have at least 3 months pay stubs from employer A to be safe in getting the Transfer petition approved when employer B files it for you.
