I have obtained an E3 visa & commenced work in the US, I quite my job after 2 wks (employers we awful) so I started searching for a new job. I resigned 2.5 weeks ago today I have been offered a new job which will start in January.
How do I change over my visa to my new employer?
Can I do it within the US or do I have to go outside the US and start the entire process again?
I've heard I should go back to Australia to do the visa, is this true?
Will the US consulate deny me a new E3 because I have stayed longer than the 10 days allowed after leaving my job?
Will they ask me for pay stubs to prove that i finished my job less than 10 days ago?
How long before I start my job am I allowed to enter the US?
I would appreciate as much help as I can get.
You were out of status when you quit I believe. That means that you probably won't be allowed to change your employer in the US. They would ask for your last pay stubs and if there is a gap they can make you go back. I believe you can enter 10 days before you are set to start. I'd get a lawyer for all of this if I were you.
