Hello Barat26. Congratulations on your approval. Did your attorney received the original approval notice hard copy or they got the notification via email?
Hi, quick question - Did you start working for your new employer after getting the receipt or did you wait for the approval?
ano2015 - One should always wait for the extension to come through otherwise you will be in what they call a 'bridging' situation and in case your older H1 extension gets denied the new employer H1 will also get automaticall denied and you will be out of H1 status. This is called the last action rule - Google it.
Amit - Sorry, I might not have been clear earlier. My current visa ends in 2019 and I am now looking at changing employers. So what I'm wondering is - should I wait for the approval of the new employer H1b before joining or if I should join based on the USCIS receipt of their application?
If you have received USCIS receipt for new H1B then you can join the new employer pending new H1b approval.
I was looking at https://www.quora.com/Can’t-I-switch-jobs-on-H1B-now-as-H1B-premium-processing-suspension-for-the-next-6-month-is-in-effect-as-notified-on-3-3-17
specially the comment by Vikram. What are the chances that it gets denied? What are my alternatives in that case?
No one but God knows what chances are there for it getting denied or approved. Welcome to the immigrant life in the US. If it is denied, you are out of status but based on Obama rule making approved last year, you will now have 60 days (As opposed to 30 before Obama rule) to find a new employer who will file H1 for you.
@saurya1982 : Yes, My attorney received the notice hard copy.
@ano2015 : I am with the same employer and I did not plan for switch.
