H1B from India before joining


Recommended Posts


One big employer has identified a project for me in USA and he is willing to sponsor a new H1. He has offered in India and once I join I could go to US. Technically is it possible to file for H1 and go for stamping etc before the start date? Its how H1 works , but for India based offer is it still valid? I am concerned because.


1) The joining location is India, 

2) Salary is quoted in INR.

3) So just filing an LCA is sufficient or I need a US based offer to be eligible for H1 filing. 


So want to know if they can proceed with filing with cap exempt H1 and I can go as far as stamping before joining them.
