I have a query regarding the H1B status and what are my options.
My H1B petition was approved after going through the RFE process and I have an I797 C form approved until June 2023. I understand that this is not a visa.
I live in India and I have never travelled to the US and neither have I attended a Visa interview.
My query is what are my options if I want to switch companies now in India. My current employer had filed the H1B petition and now its approved. There are not a lot of opportunities to travel in the near future either(1-2 years) in my current company.
So, I wanted to know if i can switch to another company in India and still use the current H1B approved I797 C to travel later?
If I switch company now in India, will my I797 C approval form be null and invalid?
What are my options to retain the H1B approval and work for a different company?
Can someone please shed some light here?
