Please request for your clarification for my case.
I have a stamped H1B with Company A. I went through the whole submission process with Company A in 2017, got my approval in Jan 2018 and got it stamped in July 2018. But I have not entered US with that visa yet due to personal reasons and the company A was ok with it. However, now my current company is offering me an internal transfer to US (i believe they will apply for an expat visa not sure if that is what is called). That being said i have the following questions?
- Will I even be allowed to apply for another visa with a valid H1B status in hand?
- Will my H1B be still valid and how long will it be valid, if i choose to go with the internal transfer option under a different visa and not use my H1B status?
Thanks a lot in advance.
