Travel during H1B transfer


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Date when post was written (March 24th 2017)

I searched for this topic but there does not seem to be a clear answer for my case.

I am currently employed for Company A. Passport is stamped with my current H1B and is valid until Sept 2018.

Company B wants to hire me after April 3rd (when premium processing is temporarily stopped). Company B will apply for H1B (transfer) after April 3rd.

Company B wants me to travel to Europe for business purposes within few weeks of hiring. Since premium processing is stopped, i am not sure how long the h1b transfer will take. My question is can i travel to Europe for business purposes with just the receipt of i94/i797 from company B in hand? i.e, before h1b transfer has been approved?
