F1 to H4 and EAD, long wait, same time H1B extension, Option of Going to India for Stamping in H1B : H-4 Issues Posted January 15 · Report reply 18 hours ago, megha91 said: Hi, Currently I am on F1 OPT. My OPT is expiring on 16th Jan 2019. Applied for F1 to H4 and EAD in May 2018. There is no change in my application yet and the processing time was 11.5 to 15 months at Vermont service center. My spouse had his visa till sep 2019 and his employer may file a extension around July 2019. As of now h4 or H1B extension any application may come first. So what am i supposed to do, Is it a good idea to go to India around Feb 2019 to get my visa stamping. If so what is the document list for F1 to H4 visa(I only see a list for H4, what am i required additionally for F1 to h4). Do i get questions about my withdrawal application of f1 to h4 and EAD and F1(OPT) if i do so. What are the precautions I should take. Thanks & Regards, Megha I'm also in the same situation, please let me know if you find out any details about this. Thanks.
