  • H1B visa layoff

    My current employer laid me off. My last working day in this company will be July 1st. So I will have a job till July 1st. I haven't found any employment yet. I would like to know what would be the grace time for me to find another employment so I can get my current H1B visa transferred to another company after I get an offer. Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

      But when I researched on this on the Internet everyone says that there is a period of 30 days to find another job and transfer my visa to the new employer. Is that not true?

        I have one more question regarding this. If I am not able to find a job before July 1st, what are the other options for me to stay in this country and work as well.

          There is no grace period. You will fall out of status as soon as employment is terminated. You will have to find a new employer to sponsor you to work with and to extend your stay in the country.
