rdx0 is infamous around these parts
Default Can I file H1B extension/transfer through multiple employers??

Hi,

I am in a unique situation, any advise/help would be appreciated.

My H1 Visa and I-94 are expiring on Jan 20, 2009. It can be extended till Apr 2011 as I have been in US only for 3 Yrs and 8 Months. My current employer is not extending my Visa, so I am going to get it extended through another company, say COMPANY ABC (a Staffing company basically).

However, I don't want to be with Company ABC because I am soon going to get a job with a direct client, CLIENT XYZ, but that won't happen until Jan 25th or so.

So my question is, if I apply for extension through COMPANY ABC for now, just so that I don't go 'out of status' on Jan 20th, will CLIENT XYZ be able to apply for my extension on Jan 25th, while my application with Company ABC is still pending? Or they (CLIENT XYZ) will have to wait until my first application (With COMPANY ABC) is processed?

Basically, just want to know if a Company ABC has filed for H1 Transfer and I-94 extension before the expiry date, can another Company XYZ file for an extension/transfer after the expiry while the application from company ABC is still being processed?

Any help is appreciated. I have posted this query on couple of other posts but no one seems to know the answer! no one replied yet

To my knowledge H1B extension is just like a new H1B application ofcourse 6 years window will be couted here and you have spent just 3 years. To me you can file H1B extension with multiple companies. But its better to file it with original company to be on safe side, onece the extension approval come ytou can trasfer it whereever you want.

Thanks
