Originally posted by Nila dhan: I am holding a B1 visa (multiple entry for 10 years) applied by a company X. Currently I switched to company Y. Is the B1 visa still valid? Could it be used in company Y ?
Check for Annotations on your visa stamp, if no annotation, you can use it through any company.
Be strictly warned that legitimate trip duration should be at the max 8 weeks that too supported by proper Invite document and training plan etc., I recently had a tough time exiting out of US for trip duration 12 weeks. [ August 25, 2008: Message edited by: Sunit Gupta ]
