I am working for a major Services based Software company in Bangalore, India.I have got a valid H1 B petition from this company which is valid till Sep 2008.My doubt is if I decide to quit my present employer, will my H1B visa be still valid? Also in case I need to get any transfers of my visa what is the procedure for the same?
It depends on where you are based:- If you are based in US, then you can transfer the visa, ie, a fresh petition can be filed for you by a different organization and you are eligible to start working for them as soon as the petition is applied for, and a receipt is obtained. On the other hand if you are in India and have never been to US on H1-B visa, then you are not eligible to transfer the visa. In the latter case, you have to first get the visa stamped from your present employer and go to USA and then only you can transfer that visa.
