Need some guidance here: I had my H1b transferred to a new employer recently. I am planning to go to India in December but I am not planning to get my visa stamped as my old h1b stamp is valid till July 2022. Am I risking it too much?

You should be good. Have done this in the past, all you need is a valid H1 stamp to re-enter. Just show your new 797. Just check with your new employer’s immigration team as well, sometimes they’d give you a letter, which no one would ask.

From my knowledge I had to have a confirmation letter from the employer that stamp is for in hand for the entrance to the US, I don’t remember if they checked but one of those things that they might ask you.

So a confirmation letter from my old employer? And what should that confirmation letter say?

Because, “transfer” is not really a transfer, it is a new petition all together

Friends - Is any company hiring? Considering H1B transfer? I have total only 28 months left on my visa? Doesn’t look like the firm is going to sponsor green card. I have been performing well in my department no negative reviews in 4 years yet HR denied to file GC. Apparently they are only considering Managers for GC. Is this the same situation in Big 4 Audit? Please comment.
