I would like to share my latest H1B visa stamping experience Islambad. My brief background: I came to US first in Aug 2004 on F1 visa with my wife and kid on F2 visas. We visited Pakistan in Jun 2006 while on F1. My H1B status started in Oct 2007. We came to Pakistan in last week of December 2008 and needed to obtain H1B visas to return back to USA. We got our appointment for Jan 9, 2009. VO asked few general questions related to job etc. and examined my original educational documents, letter from my employer, my tax returns and my salary slips.

Comment: 
We  had the best experience working with Mr  Rajiv Khanna and his  staff. They were very knowledgeable, friendly and supportive in processing H-IB visa  for one of our employees. the staff was very detail oriented making sure they had  all the correct  information before filing the petiton to USCIS.  ,and the turn around time was very quick . they tried  to understand our situation and provided appropriate responses . Mr Rajiv Khanna was , always there guiding us through the process through conference calls. Fran and Anna were the best , they were very very helpful, and supportive in every step and made the H-1B process go very smoothly.

Maintaining H-1B Status While Changing Employers

I am working for my employer in H-1B status, but another company has offered me a better position. Can I just transfer to the new company with my H-1B approval?

When an H-1B foreign worker would like to change employers and continue to maintain his or her current H-1B status, an I-129 petition must be submitted to USCIS by the new employer or its representative. The forms in this case will be treated as a new petition and will require the appropriate filing fees.
