Immigration H1B related - I want to confirm this scenario.

Imagine you completed 6 years on h1b. 3+3. I-140 approved. You're on your 3rd H1B now. According to new rules you get a reject or denial directly instead of an RFE while transferring to Company B from Company A.

Does this void your visa status and you need to go back home? Or is this FUD and you can still work with Company A as long as i94 is valid.

1. Troll elsewhere.
2. If you're going to say ask a lawyer, save the effort.

    You can work with A as long as you have not left A while B’s petition is under process. Having said that, USCIS lately provided all the list of documents they need at minimum to process the petition and they can outright deny the petition if any of them is missing

    Yes you have to go back home. US immigration law sucks.

      Wrong answer. Educate yourself before commenting on something you aren't familiar with.

    Okay so it's not all that crazy. Like otherwise after 6 years people will be scared to move companies.
