Is there a rule to join a company within 60 days of H1b transfer approval? I got a job offer and my H1b was transferred to the new company. I was thinking of postponing the joining date by 3 months for personal reasons. I will be working on valid visa these 3 months with my current company. However, the paralegal says it is safe to join the new company within 60 days of the H1b transfer start date. Has anyone of you been in a similar situation? Highly appreciate you response.

    Yes, have done it in the past. It is safe as per the rules but with this administration, you never know.
    90 days may be a stretch, stay within 60 days.
