  • H1B Visa stamping after 6 years with new employer

    I have completed 6 years of my H1B by last February; but I changed my employer in December of last year. I have approved I-140 on behalf of my old employer.

    Based on I-140, I got 3 more years of extension, my new employer will start my green card only after 6 months. Now, I need to go to India for personal work, if I go to India, I need to go for Visa stamping interview.

    My questions are,
    1) Can I use my old employer I-140 at the time of interview?
    2) What I need to tell if they ask for new employer's green card petition?

    Thank you for answering most of the questions in the forum. appreciate your help.

    Well actually you do not need to use the I-140 you just need to show it was approved at the time when the extension was done. However, there are other factors which can come in. I will recommend talking to your company attorney or call us at 510 742 5887 for a full consultation before you leave.
