Travel after H-1B visa transfer

Amazon buh-bye!

I have an approved petition for my visa transfer and am waiting for the physical I-797. I’ve quit my current job. Is it safe to travel internationally before starting the new job? Has anyone done this?

      I did it, I had visa stamping from previous employer and approved petition. The one at immigration told me I need to get visa stamp for new company so she sent me for interrogation. Inside, they made me wait 4 hours to get my turn come up. They just let me in without asking anything. That woman outside didnt know the rules.

      So I’m guessing this could happen even if you travel after commencing work with your new employer, because you’re still going to have a stamp from your old employer. That sucks

      The old stamp doesn't affect you, just tell them to look at the next page, I have 4 stamps
