Latest Us Guidelines For Terminated H 1b Visa Holders

H1B Visa: The US Immigration Services (USCIS) has issued updated guidelines for H-1B visa holders who have lost their jobs in the US. Major American companies like Google, Tesla, Walmart have recently announced layoffs. Many workers lost their jobs due to this. This has also affected Indian tech workers settled in the US.

However, USCIS has issued new guidelines. It allowed them to extend their stay in the US. Provides a 60-day grace period for H-1B visa holders who lose their jobs. But USCIS has explained the process of what to do after the grace period ends.

-Can file an application for change of nonimmigrant status.
-Can apply for adjustment of status.
-An application for 'forced circumstances' employment authorization can be made.
-Can petition to change the owner.

USCIS also outlines the rules that H-1B nonimmigrants must follow if working for a new employer in the US. If a visa-holder wants to change jobs, their new employer must fill out Form I-129 and send it to the appropriate authorities. The individual can begin working for their new employer immediately upon submission. No need to wait for approval before changing jobs.

USCIS says that if a person who applied to become a permanent resident (green card holder) by submitting a Form I-485 and waits at least 180 days for approval, they can move the underlying petition (Form I-140) to a new job offer with the same employer or with a different one.

Workers who can apply for immigrant visas without requiring employer sponsorship can apply for their visas at the same time they wish to adjust their status. While waiting for their adjustment of status, they can remain in the US and obtain an Employment Authorization Document (EAD). If they are granted an immigrant visa petition based on employment in cases of great hardship, they may be eligible for a one-year Employment Authorization Document (EAD).
