Default Green Card sponsor by future employeer...

Hello there,

I am currently on H1 visa 3 yrs have gone by.

I currently am employed with Company A.

I have come in contact with Company B which is ready to sponsor my
Green Card, and then when he would get a project he said I could move
to his company?

Is this a valid process.

any tips here?

Regards,
SP

You'd be able to move to his company once you had work authorization
based on the green card application. This would be some months or years
after he started the process. It would be more usual for him to apply
for an H-1B for you as well, then you'd be able to move to his company
as soon as the H-1B application was filed (assuming there was work for
you).

Thanks,

I am happy with my current employeer but they would take another 6
months to apply, so i was investigating if I could use this process?

Regards,

Not that easy. It sounds like that company wouldn't qualify to sponsor
you for a Green Card, because in order to do that, they would have to
make you a definite, and permanent, job offer. "once he gets a project"
probably does not qualify as either definite or permanent.

That said, changing from company A to company B is not all that
difficult. Company B would have to apply for an H-1B transfer for you.
Or, of course, they would have to wait until your Green Card case has
progressed enough for you to get employment authorization.
