How to Transfer a Current H1B Visa to a New Employer?
Current H1B visa holders can transfer their visa and start working for a new employer immediately after an H1B visa transfer petition is 'submitted' to the USCIS by the sponsor company / new employer.
H1B visa transfers are unlimited and are not calculated towards the regular H1B visa quota (cap).
* It means that H1B visa transfers can be petitioned at any time of the year.
The H1B visa transfer bill approved in the US Senate House (bill S.2045) now has rules and regulations that enable lawful H1B visa holders to switch jobs upon the new petition filing by the new sponsor / employer as long as the visa holder is in lawful status at the time of petition filing and hasn’t engaged in any unauthorized employment after his or her last lawful admission.
As per the H1B portability rules of the American Competitiveness AC21, an H1B holder may start working with a new employer, on a condition that the new US employer strictly follows the process to file an H1B transfer application on behalf of the employee.
