I recently got my H1b approved(counselor processing) under I797-B category. I am currently planning to switch to another employer. Can the other employer apply for H1b transfer before I go abroad, get the stamping done and activate H1b? I am currently on H4 EAD status which expires on Sept 2022.
On a side note, my current employer says I cannot switch to a new employer. I have to first get the H1b activated either by going abroad to get visa stamping done or the current employee will apply for COS application. Where as the new employer is ready to do the change of status. Not sure which route to take.
Thanks for your help.
