Q: H-1B visa transfer and extension

I am on H-1B visa with company X and have decided to join a non profit healthcare organization who will be transferring my H1-B visa along with extension. Will it impact if I decide to switch to any other company at later point in time post successfull transfer? What are chances that my Visa transfer is successful considering its a non profit healthcare organization

A: Whether you can successfully “port” to another employer depends on multiple factors including the amount of time that you have been in H-1B status, if the job position is a specialty occupation, your background and qualifications, etc. The same factors will come into play when you decide to “port” again.

You should visit with an experienced immigration attorney to obtain personalized guidance with your plans.

Good luck to you.
