I believe you intended to say H-1B visa. The answer to your question is NO. You are not required to re-stamp your H-1B visa if it is still valid and your change of employer was granted from inside the US and your status was extended. You must travel using your valid H-1B visa (even with the old employer's name shown on the annotation) AND the original approval notice for the new employer. The CBP officer at the port of entry shall grant you stay on the new I-94 until the expiration of the new approval notice, even if this date is beyond the expiration date of the H-1B visa stamp. You are NOT required to apply for a new visa in your current scenario.
