H1 B stamping in India while second employer filing a H1B Transfer

Recommended Posts

I am planning to visit india and had to go for visa stamping. I am planning for visa stamping with all the documentation provided by current employer but recently last month i got selected by new employer and they started filing H1B and got LCA approved.

I did not get any joining date with new employer, So i am planning to go with my current employer for stamping. If I go for visa stamping in India will i have problems at consulate. Will they be able to see the second employer is filling H1B ?

Please help.

Thanks in Advance

I had the exact situation and below is what my company attorney said

1) New company can't file for your H1B transfer if you are physically out side US

2) Say new company files for your transfer before you leave then mostly H1B may be approved but COS may be denied. For which you will have to get visa stamped by traveling outside US
