H-1 Transfer

I have an H-1B Approval Notice that is valid until next year.I have been working with my present employer for two years, but have found a position with a different company. Can my H-1B approval be transferred to this new company?

It is possible to apply for an H-1 transfer with USCIS, provided the H-1 holder is maintaining legal status and fulfills all the requirements.

I would like to thank Mr.Rajiv and his team (especially Anna Baker and Fran Fischer) for getting my H1B transfer with extension. It may sound simple but both my I-94 and Visa were expired for more than 240 days and my extension with the previous employer was pending with USCIS for almost 9 months. We were really impressed with the way the case was prepared and presented to the USCIS. Anna Baker and Fran Fisher was very supportive during the entire process and answering even the simplest of questions promptly. I was surprised one evening when Anna called me at 7:30 PM to discuss about the case. That shows the level of professionalism by LORK's team. I would recommend LORK for all immigration needs.

My name is Rahul Patil. I am currently working at Restek Corporation in Bellefonte, PA as a Research Chemist. My company had hired your law firm to transfer my H1 visa from Penn State University to them. My H1 was transferred without any problems. I was very satisfied the service I received from the staff of your law firm. My company was also happy with the services and would hire your firm for any future immigration work.

H-1B portability without a visa stamp

I came to US on H-4, so I have only H-4 stamping in my passport. Got my H1b picked up in lottery two years back, and did COS to h1, and have approved i797A with I-94 and working with my current employer. Got an offer from another company, and they filed my H1b transfer, and got the i-797A approval with I-94. So my question here is, can I join the new company using the H1b transfer approval, even though I don’t have H1b stamp at all in my passport? Will this be a valid H1b transfer?, or should I go back to India to get my H1b stamping to join the new employer?
