I’m posting this question on behalf of my friend.
My friends petition was picked in the last years H1B lottery(2017) and his status was approved. He was working with say emp-A where he did not find any onsite projects or opportunities. Therefore, emp-A did not allow him to appear for stamping.
Meanwhile, he got a very good offer from emp-B and told that he would get onsite projects. Without any knowledge about H1B, my friend was resigned from emp-A and joined emp-B. Notably, he didn’t appear for stamping or holding any papers(I-797) from emp-A.
My questions are (assuming his visa with emp-A is not revoked)
- Is he still able to use his H1 petition from emp-A through emp-B, appear stamping and travel to US?
- What is your suggestion for him to get H1 visa?.
Please advise. This should be more helpful. He is also communicating the Visa team of emp-B, but not getting proper answers from them.
