  • H1 to H4 COS while H1 transfer pending

    Company A has filed my H1b which was approved and active from Oct 1st 2020. I was laid off from company A on August (due to covid).
    Company B is going to file my H1 transfer on Oct 1st. If I file for H1 to H4 COS on Nov 15th (still within the gap period)

    Will my H1 registration number still be valid and will I be exempt from the H1B quota for the next 6 years?
    Will I be subjected to counseling when I transfer from H1 to H4?
