Does anyone know if someone is laid off from non profitable organizations like university, hospital etc how many months he can stay in US before returning to Nepal? And If he has an H1B visa, then can he apply in other companies and transfer his H1B visa, how does this work!! Anyone has gone through this before, suggestions appreciated.

If you have certain time before you are laid off you can always find job and transfer your H1B to another company.IF you are already laid off and it has been long time may be u can transfer your visa to F1 or some other relevant to you and make sure you file those before you leave to maintain status.Consult with desi consultants for immediate transfer.Make a updated resume which can be handy in whatever you do.If you seed my your field and skills set may be I can guide you more.

I am not with Desi consultancy, i am with a academic institution like university.  I dont know if H1B under University is transferrable like it is transferrable with private companies.

You will not have any grace period. As soon as you are laid off your H1-B visa terminates. This applies to all H1-B. Profit or non profit.

The H1 issued for Non profit organization is not transferable to a profit org. you will have to reapply for H1 visa from the profit org.

I think the H1B can be transferred to another non-profit organization. Why did you get laid off? Was it a budget cut? If so, which state?

yes due to budget concerns. Do you know how much is the window period to get another job to get H1B transferred? help appreciated.

Sorry to hear about this. The darn recession is cracking everything down.

Technically, you have to get a new job and get hired in two weeks, but that is by book. It does not happen in reality as everybody who have been through this issue know it is baloney. The most advisable suggestion would be to go back to an affordable college; so start applying and get ready for fall session may be. As is known it is painful to do all that concerning finance and professional aspirations, but USA is all about this being in status, especially with international students or "potential immigrants", which almost all of them are, ironically. Then, you can explain your time spent in between to USCIS with proper citation of your efforts to stay in your best motive with valid reasons.

But, if you really convince and "impress" another company, be it non-proft or profit whatever, with all the merits you have, then you can get your H-1B transferred, on a condition that the second employer does not regard you as a "burden" or your H-1B transfer as a 'nuisance'. Because you come / apply with a string called H-1B visa, people might frown at the unwanted obligations you come with in the office. But this does not mean, H-1B transfer does not happen, it does. Just have some solid networking and speaking/ selling capabilities that you can prove them you are the best above any local American applicants, as H-1B visa holder should not displace an American's job, as said, though we know how people are working the other way round to just make use of some loopholes that are there in the whole system.

There are certain legal formalities you have to know if you are able to transfer, like when you should start working and etc. Internet is a boon in a case like this, just google and do not go stray.

My sincere regards.
