    If you never traveled to US, your new employer has to file a new H1B petition for you which will go through next year's lottery.

    Since you had a petition approved within the last six years, you should be cap exempt. Have the new employer file a petition on your behalf and use your unexpired H1B visa and the new approval notice to enter.

    Could you please help me to know what all the documents should require for my new employer... before that do we need to transfer H1-B from my old company to new company? Right now i am not carrying any old H1B Related documents. Please guide me.

    At a minimum, you need a copy of the H1B petition approval.
