I am in F-1 status, and two unrelated companies filed H1B change-of-status petitions for me in this year’s lottery. If the cases are selected, and both are approved, do I have to notify the USCIS as to which employer I am joining?


In general, if one has multiple H1B petitions approved for change of status, it would be possible simply to choose the employer for whom one prefers to work. The other employer/s then would withdraw their approval/s. (01.Apr.2019)
