I am on L2 visa working for company A. I have an approved H1-B petition from company A.
I might get job from company B. I want to join company B on H1-B and not L2. Can Company B transfer approved H1 from company A even if my current status is L2 and that H1 has never been used.
If it is not possible, can i travel back to India to get H1 stamped for Company A, come to US, resign from company A and then transfer my H1 to company B. Is there any specific timeframe for which one has to be on H1 status with company A before it can be transferred to some other company.
Once I move to company B on H1, Is there a time frame for which I have to work with company B before I can go to India and get the H1 stamping done for company B and come back to US.
Many Thanks. Appreciate your responses.
