  • Cap-exempt H-1B to Cap trasfer and Visa Stamping


    I am new to this community and would highly appreciate if anyone can input their thoughts.

    I finished PhD in USA and then joined a university as a postdoc for two years until April 2012. Before the end of my postdoc, I received a job offer from a biotech company. I had to return home as I would be out of status after April. In the mean time, the company sponsored H1B and got it approved from USCIS with start date of Oct. 1 (due to change from cap-exempt to caps-subject H1B quota). Now I am in India since April and will be going for stamping in July first week. Is there any reason for me to be worried for visa stamping given that I am not technically employed for these five months even though I received an offer before I left my first job in USA? I should mention that I have never been rejected for visa and never have been out of status while in USA.

    Any other comments and suggestions will be highly appreciated.

    It won't be an issue as long as you have the qualification, skill set & experience for the H1B job offered.
