  • H1B- Stamping After Changing Employers

    Thanks to Desi OPT for all your hard work !

    I am currently working for US based company in California. I have got my H1 sponsored from my company. I went to India couple of months back and got my H1 stamped, now am planning to change my company and move to a new one. My H1b started in this October and valid for three years, now if I change my employer and re-visit India by next year, is it necessary to get the stamping again or is it ok since I have already got the stamping for three years ? Thanks for your responses in advance ! Happy New Year !

        You don't need a stamping

          I don't think you need the stamping again as visa is only for travel and you already have valid visa

            You need to get a new stamp on new employer. If immigration officer is kind enough, then he can grant you in at some rare occasions without new stamp but is highly risky!.

              What i learnt was, u need to go for new stamp again bcz your new employer will file a new H1 B for you after your H1b transfer

                      I NEED AN ADVICE PLEASE GUIDE ME
                      My educational background involve I have done 2 bachelor [1]Bachelor in arts[2]Bachelor in law

                      My future aim is to settle down in usa ----I find education is only mode by which i can get a job in usa and thereby earn salary there. I am from a middle class family and taking a huge loan and coming to usa KEEPING IN MIND THAT I WILL REPAY IT when i get job. After searching i found out that i have 2 option

                      First to do mba from there [which provide me 1 year of opt and 1 chance to apply for h1b]

                      OF IT FIELD IN USA

                      but after some research i found that if i do stem degrees [masters in computer information system] i get 29 month extension and 3 chance of h1b process and i also came to know that most of h1b sponsors are hiring graduate students from IT field especially computers.and it is easy to find a job in IT field comparatively if you done an mba from a university not in top 20 as i cant afford those due to high tuition.Another reason is that as we know that h1b is a lottery so if i do mba and donot come into a lottery than icant work in usa and if i couldnot work in usa i cant pay my loan expenses by working in india and this education dream will be a curse and i donot want to go under that situation But if i choose an masters in computers even if i couldnot get a job in 1 year , i can work in opt and apply for next year due to stem extension.but my case has a demerit i have no IT experience some one told consultancy will solve your issue and make your resume look nice.please guide me showing real picure of usa??as this step will be turning point in my life?How the IT scene in usa ???Does stem student after graduation find a job?As my bachelor is not in computers and simple arts does it have any effect in visa or h1b or when employer looks at resume?Guide as i don't know IT scenario there?Bottom line is i donot want that situation in which i haven given a degree and said go back to india as earning in usa and settling down here is my priority and that is why i am taking education a a medium pathroute to usa in which i found IT field a safe step............................Guide

                      PLEASE SAY IT FIELD REAL PICTURE IN REGARD TO JOB OPPORTUNITIES, AND HI1B for those who have completed their masters in usa?does fresher tag is a setback or consultancy will feel good
