  • L1 to H1 Query


    I am currently working on L1B (company A) and have approved H1 petition. I have an offer from company B and is ready to transfer the H1 in COS.

    Once I receive the receipt number, can I resign L1 company and start working for H1 company? This way I'll get enough time for the handover in company A on L1.

    I cannot wait till the COS approval notice. The reason is that I want to leave the job (L1 company A) with proper handover and following the exit process of company A.

    Please help. Thanks in advance.

    No. You need the approval to begin work on any COS.

    I am not a lawyer and you need to consult with one to validate any info posted on the forum and discuss your case specifics. H1b Question? Read the FAQ first.

      H1B petition approved with Company B (no H1B visa yet)
      got offer from Company C (looking for H1B transfer)

      desparately wanted to switch from Company A to C.
