  • H1B Transfer Consular Visa Processing - Do I need to leave US immediately?

    Previous H1B Valid from 1st Oct 2014 till Sept 2017 - Employer laid me off on 31st Jan 2016 but haven't revoked my H1B visa.

    My I94 is valid till Sept 2017.

    I got a new job in April 2016, new employer filed for H1B Transfer, I started working based on H1B receipt on 6th April 2016.

    Since I didn't have paystubs for Feb-March2016, USCIS approved H1B for Consular Visa Processing.

    Do I need to stop working for my new employer immediately and go back to India, get new visa stamped and reenter USA? The earliest interview date I can get is on July28th, which is more than 2 months from now. Can I keep working until 25th July instead of stop working immediately?

    Please give your opinions/advice. Thank You so much.

    You ar enot authorized to work. You should leave and re enter on a fresh visa. You can also explore the option of attending visa in a neighboring country too.

    This is my opinion not legal advice.
