My H1B petition was recently approved and my passport was already stamped with H1B.
This is my first H1B and I never worked in the US before.
My concern is that one more employer is interested in my professional background and would like to transfer my H1B before entering the USA.
I would like to understand whether my H1B can be transferred to a new employer before moving to the USA.
Whether it will have any negative impact now or in future?
Could you please advise me?
Yes this is possible. Technically its not a change of employer aka transfer petition but a new cap-exempt petition when the beneficiary is not already working and present in the US otherwise it will be change of employer/transfer.
Thanks a lot.As I never worked in the US before, It concerned me a lot.Anyway, now I understood.
Sorry one more question. If my understanding is correct I don’t need to go for stamping once again right?
Yes, if you already have a valid H1B visa when you travel to the US.
Thanks a lot.I Understood.
My h1b petition initially refused due to client issue in 2021 when i attended interview in Hyderbad VAC. Later we made amendment with new client and approval came march 2022. Now i would like to transfer this current approved h1 to other company and want to know if i eligible to do ? Should i wait atleast 3 months and later transfer is the best option?
You can transfer any time, no need to wait.
Thanks kalpesh for your reply .
If I do immediate transfer now then later when I go for stamping with new company then VOfficer can bug on this like y frequently amendment and transfer?
I dont think they are concerned about who you transfer your H1B to and how many times. Their duty is to review the application, documents and approve or deny the visa.
Thank you Kalpesh for advice
