The company I am currently working for has applied for my H1B visa in premium processing. If I get an approval by end of may or June first week will I be able to change my job before October? What will be the implications on my H1B visa. I am on OPT now.

      Is that the case even if I'm in US?

    • Yes. Once you leave your company, your h1b is revoked

      A new h1b is considered cap exempt only if you already are on h1b. Your h1b won't start before Oct 1.
      Suck up and change job after October.
