Hope you all are having wonderful time. I got some queries regarding H1B amendment and transfer petitions. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Here is my scenario:
I am currently working for Company X and my visa is stamped for Company X only. As there is a change in Client and location so Company X is going to file for an H1B amendment petition under regular processing. Meanwhile I got a job offer from Company Y and they are ready to file for H1Btransfer (or you can say new H1B application as there is no H1B transfer concept technically). I have below queries in this context:
Will there be any problem if amendment and transfer go in parallel?
Will Company X be notified by USCIS about Company Y’s transfer petition as Company X’s amendment is also in progress?
Is it fine not to disclose to Company Y about Company X’s amendment petition as Company Y may not file for transfer if they come to know about the amendment petition?
As amendment petition takes around 9 months to get approval, so it’s not practical for Company Y to wait for such a long time.At the same time I am afraid that if Company X comes to know about the transfer then they may revoke my H1B.
Any input in this regard will be of great help.
Thanks a lot in advance!
