  • Visa transfer within 6 months of I140

    Hi All,

    The following are my details

    I140 Approved - October 5th 2018
    H1B Expiration with Visa and I94 with 6 years maxing out- 29th Aug 2019

    I want to switch jobs, and even though i will wait for the exact 180 days period to complete on 3rd april, so will move to the new employer on 7th or 10th april.

    However, i will have to initiate the H1B transfer earlier around mid of feb.

    And the new job is very much different from my current, so the job duties and designation will be a lot different

    So my question is

    1. Can my new employer initiate a h1b transfer before I complete the 180 days to I140 with my current employer, and still get a H1 approved for greater than 6 years max out date with an approved I140 from previous employer.
    2. Is it safe to switch exactly after 180 days is complete, or there is a reason for us to wait a little longer.
