I was on student visa till oct this year, my H1b has started after that. In the meantime I have changed the company. I have taken the visa stamping appointment for it with my old employer by completing the DS-160 form. DS-160 has old employer as a petitioner. Now I have started working at new company and new company has already started the visa transfer process(however it’s not completed yet). Do I need to modify the DS160 form so that it will have the new company as a petitioner? If so how can I modify DS-160? thanks in advance for your help.
You will be getting visa stamped using old employer’s petition or new employer’s? I assume it is the new one as you no longer work for the old one.
DS-160 form needs to have correct petition number and other employer details. You will have two options:
Complete another DS-160 form and when appearing for biometrics ask the person to swap the old one with new one.
Don’t change DS-160 form and when appearing for biometrics ask the person to update the information in the old one.
Make sure your new petition is approved by the time you appear for interview.
