My H1B is being filed as Notify the Office/Consular petition which means I can shift from F1 STEM OPT to H1B whenever I want to by visiting back to India and getting the stamp.
Right now I work for Employer A in US on F1 STEM OPT.
Ques 1: If I get my application approved after being picked up in lottery, do I need to get it stamped before changing to Employer B? Or Employer B can file for a H1B transfer without me getting H1B stamped from India?
Ques 2: If Employer B files for H1B transfer without me getting it stamped, do I have to go through lottery again for the trasfer? Or will I be cap exempt?
