Switching jobs when H1B stamping not done


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,


I am currrently on my OPT and contracting with a wireless telecom company through my employer who had filed my H1B for 2016 and I fortunately made it through this time.


My question is: Can I switch company once my H1B is approved but I actually have not travelled to India for the visa stamping as such.

or is it that I have to go for stamping while I am still working for my employer who had originally filed my petition.


basically I want to switch company and get my visa stamped only when this new company makes a transfer of my I797.


Will there be any issues?


Appreciate your comments/suggestions/feedback on this regard.


PS:- This is my first time here, apologies if I missed anything.


Thanks much!
