H1B transfer - How many days that I can take to switch jobs

Hi Anil,

I got H1B transfer approved with Company B and planning to join on Oct 2, 2019. Can I quit Sep 20, 2019 from current employment and take 11 days to move to the new location?.. is it legal? Any issues in future?

Hi @snr

I suggest to join the new employer immediately without a gap and then take vacation.

USCIS is very strict these days and there is no use of giving them a chance of finding a fault.

Got it! Thank you & Appreciated for your prompt response!

Hi Anil,

What if we have “Friday” as last working day in company A and “Monday” is my first working day in company B.

Is that fine? Or still problematic?


Weekend is fine. No issues.
