Can we travel with existing H1B visa validity or go for stamping?

Recommended Posts

 

My wife worked as a full-time employee for XYZ employer on H1B and her visa valid till June 25th, 2019. As her job was terminated due to budget issues and she could not find another employer for H1B transfer within 60 days she went back to India in March 2019. Now her H1B is transferred to ABC employer and got approved. Can she now travel to the USA with the approved I-797A as her visa is valid till June 25th, 2019 or she need to again go for Visa stamping?

She has to go for stamping to get ABC employer details on visa, while crossing border they check the current employer reflecting in thier system and visa on passport, if there is discrepency, she will be sent back. This was practically happened so stamping is mandatory with current employer that the h1 is approved with. all the best.

She have to provide approved i797 at the entry and there shouldn't be any issue. From where you got stamping should be with current employer? Can you please share link?

There is NO link, happened with my friend. If anybody wants to try coming back with old employer visa stamping, and have a new i797 with different employer handy. Let me know if USCIS  allow.
