can i travel on new b1 and get a h1b transfer done


i currently hold a valid h1.

i am out of us and my co is not sending me Us for sometime.

can i apply for b1 and travel on tourist visa and get a job in US and file for transfer.?


It will be seen as a misuse of visa by the USCIS. The visa officer might see that in your case file and you ‘might’ be questioned alot on your travel purpose in the interview.

Practically speaking about your question, you can.
