H1 query

Jun 12 8 Comments

Company A filed my h1 visa and most probably I’ll have to try again next year.
I want to join company B but they can’t allow me to join until I get the reject package. I’ll have to join company A before the reject package comes and I don’t want to hop companies once I start my job. What are my options other than forgetting company B?
I have 3 years of OPT left.

    Are you with comp A already? If not, comp B could let you join if you're very certain about the reject and do the OPT paperwork for you. If you're with A, I would certainly wait for the confirmation you lost.

      Then go with B now.

      I know it’s highly unlikely but what if the H1 gets picked after I join B.
      I’m sorry if the question is too naive - I’m a new grad and I am totally unaware about immigration laws, Especially H1.

      You can either try to transfer or quit B and join A. That's why I asked if you are with A already.

    Company B has no business with your rejection package. Why did you even tell company B about this?

      Had to tell the legal team so that they could prepare for a transfer in case the visa went through.

    If your petition with A is approved, then B can file a cap-exempt petition. Otherwise they have to file a new petition through the lottery.
