    H1 B transfer while out of United States

    Hi,

    I was recruited by company 'A' in US while in OPT ,worked for 2 years and got H1 B (in cap) approved from that company in May 2017. But in August, 2017 I had to come India for medical treatment for 4 months. In December 2017, I went for stamping with the same client letter that was issued for H1 B petition and got stamped successfully for 3 years and it is valid until aug 2020. Later unfortunately my company 'A' terminated me because of the project unavailability due to billing issues from the client. So I did not enter the US at all even though my passport got stamped. Could you please clarify the below questions I have :

    1) If I have to enter the US , I have to find a new employer and file a new petition with him for H1 transfer. In that case, Will I be subject to lottery again because I did not work at all in the US on H1 status?

    2) If I will not be subject to lottery, since I am in India now, how much time do I have to transfer H1 B to new employer if there is any deadline?

    3) If I had H1 B petition approved from new employer, Do I need to appear for stamping again before I travel US?

    please provide your valuable suggestions. Thank you.
