I’m currently working for employer A. I have signed an offer with employer B who is planning to file for H-1B visa transfer petition soon. I’m still interviewing at other companies. Continued....

If I get another offer from employer C, can they file for H-1B visa transfer petition? · Can there be 2 separate transfer petitions filed by different employers (B and C) at the same time for the same H-1B candidate? · If both petitions are approved, can I pick the employer (B or C) that I wish to work for? Please let me know if I should be aware of any concerns. Thank you in advance.

Yes, different employer can submit H1B petition for same person. Once you have a H1B that is approved by previous fiscal year cap, any H1B transfer is just using the same cap. And the employer will not know other firm also fill petition for you.

The only concern is your relationship with that firm that fill petition for you but you didn’t go eventually. As long as you are not burning bridges, I will say, you can have multiple firm to file petition for you

D1 - Thanks for the input. I understand that I’ll have to burn some bridges here. I’m not very interested in working for employer B because of some of their policies. I’m in the process of interviewing for employer C. I wanted to know what are the potential options that I have based on my situation.

D1 - Let’s say H-1B transfer petition from employer B is approved BEFORE employer C makes an offer. Given the fact that I’ll still be working at employer A, would I have to inform employer C about employer B at all? When employer C files for H-1B transfer petition, will there be any issues?

M, how did this process work out for you? I’m going through the same right now

I’m entry level (2020 grad). Used to work at an awesome startup before my current job in SaaS. I’ve been ramping at this co. though so I haven’t even gotten the experience yet I want on my resume. But I talked with the startup co-founder about rejoining. I was thinking part time to start, but he says there’s a high chance of a full time job for me there. Startup is 100% remote. My job at current company is client meetings and deliverables. How difficult would it be to work both at once?
