    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Yes, you can have multiple concurrent H-1b visas. You do not even necessarily need to be on vacation from company A. So long as Company B filed a new H-1b petition that was received by USCIS (safest to wait for the receipt notice), you can begin employment with Company B.
