With increasing demand for professional workers in the technology sector, there is a corresponding increase in opportunities for individuals already holding H-1B status to “transfer” to another job. The process allowing an H-1B employee to “port” to a new employer before USCIS approves the H-1B petition submitted by that new employer, however, is not always straightforward. The panelists will discuss issues that arise with H-1B portability as well as strategies to recommend to employers and foreign nationals to make a successful transfer.

Featured Topics

  • What Are the Criteria to “Port” from One H-1B Employer to Another?
  • Sticky Issues that Arise with Status Violations, Such as INA §222(g)
  • Strategies to Consider When an Individual Is About to Max Out (or Has Already Maxed Out) of H-1B Time
  • Preserving a Pending Permanent Resident Process
  • Travel Issues
  • Avoiding Lapses Between Jobs to Preserve Portability Eligibility
