    Hi,
    My current employer(A) is in the process of filing an H1B amendment as I am moving to a new location. Also I got another offer from employer B who will file for an H1B transfer. Can I have both H1B amendment and transfer at the same time?

    I really want to join employer B and does H1B amendment from employer A will affect my H1B transfer in any way?

    You can have amendment + plus change of employer petition pending with USCIS. Each petition is decided on its own merits. Whichever petition is decided latest, this is the employer you can work with.

    I am looking to join the employer B. Does my amendment with employer A affect my chances in any way?

    As long as you did not violated previously accorded status meaning getting pay checks from your existing employer & you have bona fide job offer from prospective employer you H-1B transfer will approve.
