If you find yourself in the process of transferring your H-1B visa to a new employer, it’s important to understand that you can continue working for your new employer even before the petition is officially approved. Additionally, you can travel internationally and re-enter the United States to work for your new employer while the H-1B transfer petition is still pending.
However, there are specific conditions that must be met for this to be possible:
1. Valid Previous H-1B Approval: Your previous H-1B approval notice must still be valid.
2. H-1B Transfer Receipt Notice: You must possess the H-1B transfer receipt notice from your new employer, indicating that your transfer petition is in progress.
3. Valid H-1B Visa Stamp: You should have a valid H-1B visa stamp in your passport.
In these circumstances, you have the flexibility to transition to your new employment and even travel internationally without waiting for the H-1B transfer petition’s final approval.
