Question
Hi,
I have got my H1 stamping from company A; and now I switched to the company B. Company B now likes to transfer my H1. My question is whether it would be a transfer or a fresh H1 application ? If It will be a fresh application whether that can be done any time or only with next year new applications under 65k quota ? Please clarify my doubts.

Thanks & Regards,

Answer
Hi,

You would be subject to the visa cap again since you were never actually in H-1B status (you never entered the U.S. using the H-1B visa through Co. A). Co. B would file a new H-1B petition in April, 2008.
