For me Company Y has sponsored H1-B visa in April-2015 and got my petition. I am having my L1-B with company X and travelled to USA in JUNE 2015 and currently i am in USA only, so basically my H1-B is not under COS and its a fresh one.
Now i would like to shift to company Y and so i would like to transfer onto H1-B, here are my queries:
Do i need to go out of USA for Visa stamping now in order to activate my H1-B? If so can you please guide me on that?
If stamping is mandatory, can i get it from Canada / Mexico or do i need to goto Home country?
If i go for Visa Stamping, whether my L1-B will be cancelled irrespective of i get the H1-B stamping or Visa officer will cancel my L1-B stamping only if he grants a H1? Basically dont want to end up in a situation where in both L1-B and H-1B are not valid and can’t work in USA.
Thanks in advance.
