Default L1 - H1 transfer

Hi .. I am on L1 with my current employer. I applied H1B through a consultancy and my petition got approved. My current employer told me that they can transfer my approved H1B to them. Is it really possible to transfer H1B to my current employer, just by having the approved petition?

Yes transfer is possible. However your current employer's h1b petition also
needs to be approved (RFEs replied to etc).

Hi thanks a lot for the prompt reply. But I am curious to know the chances of getting my transfer petition approved from my current employer. I heard we should be in H1B status before apply for transfer and we should have minimum 3 paystubs from the employer who processed H1B.

So without having all these is there any chance to get my transfer petition approved?

If u transfer within 30 days of getting ur new H1, u probably don't need paystubs. You can initiate the trasfer (premium) and wait for the approval and then quit from the current company. That way u'll be safe.

But I dont have H1 status. Currently I am in L1, however I have H1 approved petition which was filled by a consulting company.

So u mean to say it is possible for my current employer to file H1B transfer even though I am not in h1 status.

I thought u r H1 status since 1st october. Have u started working for the new H1 employer (leaving ur L1 behind).

I'm saying u can move from one H1 comp to another within 30 days without paystubs. If u r not even on H1, then this case doesn't arise. At L1, u can't transfer.
