Tips on changing employer on H1-B visa (approved I140 EB3)
I have an offer with a company in the same city as I am right now (LA)
My current base salary: $110K
My current role: NetSuite Administrator
My offer’s base salary: $130K
My offer’s role: Enterprise Application Manager
My H1-B visa was extended and got approved by my current employer using the premium process. (good until Sep 2022)
My wife (who’s on H4 visa) has her extension filed and is awaiting a decision on her application. (she has completed her biometrics appointment) It’s expected to get a decision sometime in February as the wait time is currently 4-5 months.
My question- should I wait for my wife’s application to get approved first and then change my job? Or it ok to change employer in the middle of her application being in process?
Also, is it a good offer in terms of compensation & location considering it’s a admin/developer kind of role?
Lastly, my passport and my wife’s passport still has the old visa. So, is it best to get our new visas stamped first and then I should change my employer?
