I am in India and have fresh H1B approved petition, Visa also stamped on my passport and It is valid till July 2021. Due to Pandemic, my travel to USA has been suspended last minute. I never travelled to USA. Now, I find no assignment/project in near future. I plan to resign from current employer and switch over to new employer. Kindly clarify the following:
- Will the current employer revoke the approved petition, If I resign and join to new employer? Is it mandatory process for current employer to inform USCIS to revoke the approved petition?
- Can’t the approved petition be transferred from current employer to new employer legally who is willing to sponsor? Or New employer have to file new petition right from the beginning and will go to lottery system again?
