  • "Successor-in-interest" sale and H1B

    I'm on H1B with I-140 approved.

    The division of the company in which I work (not the whole company) has been sold to a private equity firm.
    The sale is of "successor-in-interest" type.

    The private equity firm is just setting up a new office and picking a new name for the company.
    I was told my H1B from my parent company is still valid and do not have to file for a H1B transfer since this is "successor-in-interest" sale.

    My question is:
    When I travel to India in Nov, I will have to apply for visa interview (visa on the passport has expired).
    I will be carrying I-797 from my parent company and supporting documents related to the sale like I-9.

    Is it ok to carry I-797 from parent company or should I apply for H1B transfer before I travel?
    The new company would just be 2 months old when I travel. will that be a problem for Visa stamping?

    Sorry for the late answer but yes, as a successor interest you do not have to file the transfer or amendment. And indeed you are carrying the right documents. See the video on checklist for H1B Stamping India.
