H1 B transfer

Asked about 1 year ago - Palo Alto, CA


I am working with company A and my H1B Visa is stamped. The stamp is expiring in Sep 2014. I have not travelled to US yet.

Now I have got an offer from Company B. They say that they plan to send me to US. Now my questions are:

1) Is it possible for Company B to get the visa transferred under cap exempt?

2) Should I get the visa transferred before I join company B?

3)Can Company A cancel my visa stamp if I leave them?

4) Can I travel with Company A's stamp and company B's approved petition?
