Payroll gap between H1 transfer from consulting to full time

249 views
asked May 13, 2016 in H1B: Transfers by anonymous
Hello,

I am on H1 with a consulting firm.My consultancy with the client ended on March 31. So, the last payroll was run on the first week of April. Now I am attending interviews for both ft and contract. Now, If I take a full time opportunity and do a visa transfer to the new employer, Will this gap cause any issue? Right now, I have almost a month gap since the last payroll. Some give the opinion that I may have to show a proof from current employer that I was on unpaid leave. If my current employer is not going to provide this proof, how can I handle this situation?

Appreciate your time and response! Thank You!

If your employer is not providing leave, when you transfer your H1B USCIS may approve for a consular processing.

# 1 If you have a valid H1B visa on your passport, you ma exit/enter country with the new H1B without going for a visa stamping

#2 If you do not have an H1B visa on your passport, you will have to obtain a new H1B visa at a US Consulate

Thank You, Dan! One follow up question. Is there any limit on the duration of gap in payroll? I am very close to getting an offer but I am also concerned that time is ticking. Appreciate your response. Thanks!

I mean, regardless of whether I get a proof from my employer or if I go through consular processing.
