Hi there. I worked for an employer for 1 year and 4 months and was terminated recently
because of a security issue on the network. My H1B visa is still valid for almost 2 years,
but is unfortunately connected to my previous employer. What options are available for me
if I wanted to find a new job in the US? Is it possible for me to transfer the Visa to
another firm without reapplying for an H1B? I would want to avoid this, because it is very
expensive.

Thanks for any info.

John

Find a new job, and have your new employer sponsor you for a transfer (sorry, can't avoid
that step!) You only have 10 days for that. If it takes longer, have the new employer ask
INS to excuse your being out of status.
