Hello,my name is Judith. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions.
1. Can i have "transfer" in this year or i need to wait until 2015 cap?
Your new employer may file a new petition for you and you are NOT subject to the cap. You may use the cap number from the petition filed for you in fiscal year 2013.
The law only requires that you have a petition. It does not require that you went to work for the petitioner.
2. Does i need any approval from company A to do a "transfer"?
You need a copy of the I-797 Notice of Action - Approval Notice for Company A petition or a copy of the approved petition.
3. Does i require to do another visa stamping?
NO, your current H1B visa stamp is falid to enter with the new petition approval notice I-797.
No new visa stamp required.
Does it mean that i can go to new employer as soon as they file a petition. Or i need to wait for approval of this petition?
Also i never entered by H1B visa into US, so i don't have I-94.
I asked question about stamping because i see a lot of answers on this site to similar question, and answer was that new stamp is required. Can you please clarify it?
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX link to document.
What about "Does it mean that i can go to new employer as soon as they file a petition. Or i need to wait for approval of this petition?"
