Customer Question

I am currently in US and working on a H1B visa
I got an offer from another company. They have already prepared the H1B transfer docs to be filed at the USCIS.
I got to know that my current employer wants me to come back to India in 2 weeks to work on a new project
When i asked the New company's legal they said they have to amend the process with 'notify consul'. I can re-enter US once they get the approval.
Please advise is the 'notify consul' a different process? Is there a risk involved ?

Hello Pradosh, my name is ***** ***** I Will be the immigration attorney helping you today. Thank you for your question and congratulations on the new job.

The only difference is that you will have to present your new H1B documents at the US consulate/embassy during an interview in India when you are ready to return to the US. There is always a risk of denial as nothing is guaranteed when it comes to immigration processes in the US, but if it is a valid application and prepared correctly and you qualify, then there should not be an issue with you returning to the US once you're done.

Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!
