    H4 to F1 COS

    Hello Jairichi , Thank you for responding. Here is what the university SEVIS coordinator sent. which means all the time we studied in any of the visa's below can we counted towards the 9 months full time study . Of course you need to study 9 or more credits to meet the full time student status. is this makes sense ? Pre-SEVIS legacy INS Operations Instructions [iNS Operations Instructions 214.2(f)(14)(ix)] stated that to be eligible for practical training, an F-1 student need not have been specifically in F-1 status while studying, provided he or she was lawfully enrolled as a full-time student at a service-approved school in another nonimmigrant status that does not prohibit full-time study. For example, persons who were attending school full-time prior to changing to F-1 status as J-1 students, or as the dependents of A, E, G, H, J, L, O, and TN nonimmigrant categories, could use the time they spent studying in that status towards meeting the 9-month requirement. Aliens attending school full-time in violation of their status (INS viewed this as applying to principal aliens in B-2 status, for example) could not take advantage of this provision. The current regulation at 8 C.F.R. § 214.2(f)(10) contains wording which has allowed this policy to continue, but it has never been officially reinterpreted by DHS.

    H4 to F1 COS

    Hello Team , I firstly thank Murthy forums for providing the platform to discuss important immigration details . It help me a lot during my H1B stamping. I am looking for some answers for below questions. My wife got admitted into the one of the public universities this week for graduate studies . We are planning to Start COS from H4 to F1 from the Second Semester 1) The course work is only one year ( four Non stop semesters ) and it will end in next September . How many months does he need to be in F1 in order for her eligibility for OPT ? 2) University website says this - Means she needs to be in F1 for nine months or 9 Months as a full time student ? I see few posts as 9 Months as full time students can access OPT period post graduation irrespective of F1 Status , like COS in last semester will work ? If you are an F-1 student in lawful immigration status, you are entitled to 12 months of OPT for your program of study. You can apply for OPT: after you have been a full time international student for nine months 120 days before or within 60 days of graduation 3) Is it better to apply COS or directly got to canada or Home country to get stamped after she finishes a semester ? Thanks.

At the Canadian border we got Canadian Admission stamp but the officer did not take my I94 ( Issued During OPT arrival). I had my first H1B Stamping and during the return at POE Officer took my old I94 , Issued me a new card and stamped my passport. MY wife passport was not stamped , So I went and asked again why her passport was not stamped,he showed me the Admitted stamped ( She got on her first arrival) which had validity until my petition.After a week , today I have checked the travel history of her , it shows her latest departure Date as XXX June , But there is no arrival date Does this need to be Notified ? My case , my travel history shows the Departure and the Arrival Date the same Does this need to be Notified ? If I need to take action , How can I proceed Thanks!

    Some doubts on interview questions

    My visa was approved in Vancouver this Monday . VO asked me where do I work . I said I work at my client location . Later after few questions he asked lca pay checks and license . While he was checking LCA. He pointed with his finger at work address. Indeed they check your LCA for work location and salary
