I am transferring jobs, and as per my old employer, i had my H1B visa approved until Sept 30, 2015. However, I have received a new h1 visa until Oct 31, 2014 as per the new employer petition. WHen asked about the shortened duration of visa, the employer mentioned USCIS granted only for a year and half. I wanted to know what happens now, will my visa duration get reduced to 2014? I started my 1st H1b from Oct1, 2012, Will I be losing 1 year of my H1B visa? The employer has agreed to renew my visa in due time, but still, i wanted to get things cleared out.
