  • I-140 approved: H1B about to expire - Can I change Employer

    My Second H1B expires on Oct 23, 2009

    LC Approval date: May 21, 2008

    I-140 Approval date: Jan 05, 2009

    Left only 7 months on H1B, I know that I can transfer to another employer.

    My question is

    1) Do I have to have LC and I-140 approved in my new company within Oct 23, 2009?

    2) If I do my H1B transfer, will I get my H1B expiry date as Oct 23, 2009 or 3 years from Oct 23, 2009 as I have my I-140 approval from my previous company?

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Based on the experience of my friend, #2.

    Go with PP on the transfer and join only after getting the approval.

        No. You can get an extension based on already approved I140 provided the company that sponsored it does not pull out and revoke it. Read the Neufield memo on the forum.
