I have received job offer from a company which is ready to sponsor and apply for my visa even before I join. While my current employer is also planning on filing for me. Both are unrelated organizations. Will this cause any problem during or after the lottery process this year?
In the past two different employers were able to file the FORMI-129H on behalf of the same beneficiary. However, the filing procedures are not entirely set for the FY 2021 filings. USCIS will release instructions regarding the employer registration process in a few weeks.
