My H1B got approved last October and I haven't gotten my visa stamped. The I797 says that it will be valid till Oct 2022. Now, i am planning to go for my masters now and probably will come out of school by May 2023. Will have to reenter the H1 lottery? Or can i use this approved petition to get a stamping then?

You will need a new petition but you will be cap exempt.

@OP, it would be a new employment and visa transfer then.

You don’t need to go through lottery again.

If you’re not actually going to be working for the company that applied for the H1b for you, your H1b is effectively invalid. So no, you cannot use this visa for stamping.

Fellow Auditors, Since we all are aware that there has been a sudden pay rise of 20-30% in recent past (6M - 12M) specially for experienced staff to Manager level due to acute shortage of resources at ground level. Hence, I sometimes wonder as to who has borne all this extra cost so far. Is it the Equity Partners or the Client 🤔 In case Partners, than I really think that even though current hot market might have boon for the most but absolutely nightmare for the Partners group.
