  • Travel on B1 , H1b Stamped

    Dear Friends,

    Apologies for posting an age old query.

    This is regarding the B1 Travel from Employer B when I have the H1B Stamped from Employer A.

    I have a valid H1B Stamped from Employer A.

    I wish to file a petition ( not subj. to CAP) from employer B. Since the process is time consuming, I am asked to travel to US on B1 from employer B.

    These are my queries:

    1) Can I travel to US on a B1 Visa from Employer B, when the H1B is valid from Employer A?. if yes, what happens to my existing H1b?.

    2) Can I create a new petition from Employer B after traveling to USA?.

    Best Regards

    COS to H1b can be difficult if you enter on B1 and is in fact not recommended. Why can't B go with Premium processing?

    You can have B and H visas at one time on the passport and it is allowed. Nothing happens in most cases. The petition can be transfered to a new employer anytime when they wish to.

    I am not a lawyer and you need to consult with one to validate any info posted on the forum and discuss your case specifics. H1b Question? Read the FAQ first.

      client of employer B requires me a.s.a.p. hence, the fastest means seems to be B1 than H1 premium processing ( internal delay in org is more compared to DHS delay which leads to ~2 months for entire process).

      So, In theory .. traveling on B1 while holding a H1 is not a problem? .
