H1b Visa Stamp after changing jobs in 2019

Recommended Posts


I'm currently on my H1b in the United States and was here (in the US) on June 24th, 2020 as well. I moved jobs last year (Aug 2019) and have a valid I-797A. The H1b stamp on my passport expired in Sept 2019, so I need to get a new visa stamped. Am I eligible to get my visa stamped if I travel to India under the current Presidential Executive Order effective for workers on H1b? The consulates in India seem to be processing H1b visas now, and since I was in the US on June 24, I wonder if I would qualify for the exemption. I plan to continue employment with the same employer that I've been working with since Aug 2019, but my latest I-797 is not an extension. It's a "transfer" from one employer to another. Appreciate any clarification regarding this.

Thank you!
