H1B transfer with only Receipt number from India, never been to US


Recommended Posts

Hi ,

I have approved H1B which was filed by Employer A in April 2013 i have the below question about the transfer of H1B.

Can i transfer my H1B with another prospective employer B with only receipt number as my company is not sharing the approval notice or receipt notice.

Please note that i never traveled to US and this is fresh H1B without stamping and want to transfer from India.

The USCIS generally only considers an H1B applicant counted against the numerical H1B cap if s/he is physically present in the U.S. when the change of status to H1B takes effect or s/he is issued an H1B visa from a U.S. consulate abroad. Absent one of the above the USCIS may deny a new H1B petition filed as cap exempt. However, we have seen situations where USCIS has approved the H1B petition as cap exempt after disclosing that no visa was issued.
