Hi All,

please provide your valuable info in my case..

1) I’m working in an MNC full time. My visa expired in October 2017 and my extended petition is valid till 2020 with my old employer with i94 extended till 2020.

2) I applied for a new company full time and the petition status is rfe replied currently and expecting an update by next week as it is filed in PP and didn’t join the company yet.

3) on an urgency I need to travel to India and get my Visa stamped through Drop Box which I’m eligible for.

4) will there be any issue at POE if my transfer petiton gets approved when I’m in India?

is there any risk of stamping on old employers petiton and travel back to work for Old employer??

i have plan to join the new employer after my return.

Awaiting your inputs.

Thanks Manudeep. Company A employer petition has validity till Jan 2020 and company B employer petition has validity till June 2021. Since I will be using company A petition at POE, I will be getting i94 date as Jan 2020. After entering US, I will be working for 2 weeks with company A and switching to Companby B. Since the i94  was granted based on company A’s petition, whether I can switch to company b without changing i94?
Hi Manudeep, Can you please let me know if you have any inputs? Thanks in advance.

Hi ,

I didnt go for visa stamping, after COE approval I went for Dropbox with my Old Employer petition and no queries for me during drop box. I joined new company after coming back to US.
