Need your help to better understand the H1b ‘transfer’ process. I got layoff from Company A [startup] with last day on June 15. I have been actively recruiting and accepted an offer at Company B on Jul 19 (today) [established company, public company] with a potential start date on Aug 23. Their immigration team asked me for some basic information a couple of weeks before Jul 15 and provided green light to Hiring Manager stating that they do not foresee any issues with immigration paperwork, hence they extended me the offer. During the interview process they do not asked me about my current status with Company A at any point. On Jul 19, I also got a notice from USCIS that my previous case was revoked (probably Company A just notified USCIS about my termination on July).
My question is:
- Would this impact the H1b ‘transfer’ to Company B? My understanding is that Company B will have to fill a new application to USCIS, but what will happen if they find our that my current case has been revoked as of Jul 19?
- As long as Company B fills the application before the 60-day grace period, am I on the safe side to continue on the US?
Your clarification is much appreciated. Thank you!
