The new company will start LCA, File for H-1B change of employer Petition. Since you are still employed, the new company can file with premium processing. Assuming you don't get an RFE, You will know the decision in 15 days. Total time would be 3-4 weeks to submit application and two weeks for decision. You don't want to inform current employer as you risk them revoking your current H-1B, which could lead you to be out of status. Another risk if you inform your current employer is if H-1B gets an RFE (Extends the timeline) or if it gets denied, you will be out of both jobs. Better to follow the new company law firm advise.

OP also be aware what kind of green light your new company would be giving you. Technically, you can join new company on receipt (meaning after they file and uscis confirm receiving); but a safer approach is to wait until it is approved, that’s when you give McK notice then leave.

You should def wait to give notice/join new firm once the visa is approved. I personally had a transfer visa rejected and was glad I didn’t make the jump before coz otherwise I would have to leave the states. The time frame varies. If there’s no RFE then it should be approved in a month or so. But if you get an RFE then that process drags out much much longer. Good luck to you!

Send your resignation email once your H1B transfer is approved by USCIS

Additionally you will also receive the number against which you can track. Premium processing generally takes 5-7 business days. You can check the status and communicate to the law firm and McKinsey immigration team so that they will not have to wait until they receive the official copy. I mean you can gain few days if you are hurry..

Step-by-step of what happens! Thanks for anyone willing to help out!!!

Thank you both for the answers. Once the new company reaches out to me with a green light, then it’s just a matter of communicating McKinsey? Trying to understand also what happens once my visa is transferred. Thanks!!!

Once the new company tells you the visa has been approved, then give your notice at McKinsey.

Just communicating and leaving. Hopefully in good terms

@OP: did you try to take Search?

No, the timing will work with my project’s wrap up, plus I don’t want to take the risk of taking search, not finding a job and having to leave the US. I know this is selfish and wrong, but the risk is just too big to take.

I am switching gears from immigration law, to criminal law in the coming month. This is coming after years with a small firm. No general complaints on where I am at, I just feel I have peaked here in terms of what I can do and be compensated.

The new firm has a better compensation structure and room to grow.

The point of my post is, has anyone switched fields like this? I am excited but also a little nervous the change of pace will be overwhelming at first.

I accepted an offer from another consulting firm and my H1B visa has also been transferred. I have not joined the new role yet. However I had been interviewing with another firm and expecting an offer I know this is not the best practice but is it allowed to accept another offer even though H1 transfer has been approved through another employer? If I accept the second offer does this raise any red flags with USCIS as they potentially see 2 almost consecutive visa transfer requests?
