      H1 validity

      Iam currently in India and had never taken travel to US for Comp A.In this case, if i quit comp A, will the visa be valid to use at the future or should i have to travel atleast once for Comp A to make it valid?

        Hi friend,

        As far as my knowledge goes;

        You are given approval to work for Comp A, which means, if you decide to work for Comp B, the USCIS has to approve your work for the company B. Till then you are authroized to work only for Comp A, unless you get your approval TRANSFERED to comp B, no matter whether you travel to the US or not.

        Visa stamping is for you to enter into the land of US but the approval form is where and for whom you are going to work for. Visa stamping is approval to put your foot into the US and I-797 is to work and survive.

        1. Get your work approval transfered to comp B, even if your visa is stamped using the approval of comp A.

        2. At the port of entry they would be looking at the I-797 (approval document) which would be for comp B, if you have got your transfer from comp A to B.

        3. If you enter the US with the work permit for comp A, and you decide to change to B, you may do it from within the US and am sure your attorneys would do the formalities for you.

        All the best.

        Please consult other seniors for further decision making.
