H1b Transfer Procedure

I want to know the procedure of H1B Visa Transfer so can you tell me? Also tell me the documents required for this?

Transfer of H1B visa to another sponsor employer. If the person is currently working on an H-1B visa for one employer, and when such person changes jobs to another employer, the employer has to file a new H-1B petition for the employee.

H1B Visa Transfer-

Current H1B visa holders can transfer their visa and start work for a new employer as soon as an H1B transfer petition is 'submitted' to the USCIS by the new employer

The applicant does NOT have to wait until the Transfer is issued.

H1B transfers are Unlimited and are NOT counted towards the regular H1B quota (cap).

H1B transfers can be filed at any time of the year.

Under the H1B portability rules of the American Competitiveness in the 21st Century Act (AC21), an H1B visa holder may transfer to start work with a new employer, provided that the new US employer follows the procedures to file an H1B transfer visa application on behalf of the worker.

During the H1B transfer procedure, the following documents may be required:

• Up to 3 months latest pay stubs.
• Copies of I-94 records.
• Copy of Social Security Card.
• Latest Resume.
• Copy of your existing H1B approval.
• Passport copies.
• Copy of existing valid visa.
• Copy of all your Diploma/Degrees.

Once an H1B visa transfer application is submitted with the USCIS for processing, the procedure (processing) normally takes 4-8weeks, but in some cases it can take more time.

The time varies for each petition depending upon the location of employment, and where the appropriate USCIS visa processing office is located.
