    Hi,

    I m working for Company A in India and Company A has processed my H1B.
    a) Can I apply to US Companies directly as my petitioner is Company A ?
    b) If yes, what is the procedure. Where can I apply ?

    Thanks in advance,
    Shilpa

    H1 is tied to employer. You will have to work for Company A in US.

    Yes H1 can be transferred. You will have to specify your situation for others to comment on your case.

    Here are my details :
    1. I have H1B valid till June 2018.
    2. My Designation is Computer Programmer ( Java Developer ).
    3. I am looking for employment in US as well as H1B transfer as my visa petitioner is my current employer in India.

    Please suggest me what else I need to mention.

    Thanks,
    Shilpa

    You can transfer if you are abroad and the H petition has been approved.

    You need to find an employer who is willing to transfer your H1. My suggestion would be to market yourself amongst the big IT companies, throw that you have an approved H1 petition and that you don't fall in H1 lottery group. It will be a big plus for you along with your skill set. Getting into an American MNC from India will be tough.
