H1B Stamp vs I797 - Different Employers

Recommended Posts

I have a H1B stamp on Passport with Employer A valid till November January 2020.

I changed the Job to Employer B and now have I-797 notice of approval valid until April 2121.

I need to travel to India in November 2018.  Do I need to go for Stamping ?

Or I can travel with the Employer B stamp on passport and show I797 from Employer B at re-entry ?

Not required and you are right, "can travel with the Employer B stamp on passport and show I797 from Employer B at re-entry"

Thank you for the answer @hmaster.

I actually meant :

Please let me know.

Yes. Typo, sorry. Thats exactly what I meant. A valid H1 stamp can be used with any valid H1 I797. Show your new I797 to get a later date for I94. Sometimes officers might still defer to visa date to set I94 expiry, you can politely request/explain.
