Number of Years approval is not based on LCA . It is based on Client letter and Master agreement between employer to vendor or client.

Posted by NeeEmma

No issues for transfer, But you may or may not get approval validity as current
Posted by FerrariF1
04 Mar 2014 #35
It's just H1B transfer right? NOT extension as my new extension got approved recently until DEC 2015, so it won't be transfer alone? pl clarify in detail
