Gap between switching jobs on H1 visa


Recommended Posts


I have a valid H1 visa with Company A. I have just got my H1 transfer petition approved from Company B. I will start my notice period soon. 

I have a concern that if Company A decides my last day as Friday and first day at Company B is on Monday. 

Is this gap of two days of being unemployed at either company OK? Or I must be employed at any company at all the time?

Also another question is, I have my recent H1 stamped on passport with Company A with expiry date of September 2018. But now I am changing company and if I travel to India in December, do I need to get new stamping done with the petition of new company before I enter US again? Or my existing stamp with Company A would work while entering back?
