Now, I am getting an offer from employer Y who is ready to transfer my H1B.
1) How long it takes for the paper transfer?
2) When the transfer process is going on, can I still go ahead and get my visa stamped with the petition from employer X?
1. Regular processing - 3-9 months. Premium - 15 days to a few months (depending on whether an Request For Evidence is issued).
2. No, as my colleague stated, you should not still go ahead and get your visa stamped with prior employer.
You should speak to the attorney handling the transfer to discuss any other issues.
Although I would not recommend traveling while the petition is pending.
