Next H1B while in J1 waiver position(H1B employment)

Recommended Posts


I am a physician currently working on a J1 waiver position with H1B visa. I will be finishing my three years waiver requirements in June 2017. I am in the process of looking for my next job which will require H1B sponsorship. My questions are

1. If I am successful in finding my next job, can I process my next H1B visa application while I am in my current job. Or do I have to complete the waiver position (June 2017) and obtain a waiver completion certificate from the State where I am currently working before I can apply for the next H1B visa. Is the completion certificate a must document for next H1B application?

2. Can I work in a 1099 position with H1B visa?

3. Will my H1B come under H1B cap or will be exempted?

4. Another option for me is to switch to H4-EAD based on my spouse H1B with approved I140. Will the above rule apply for H4-EAD too (completion certificate). 

5. Is it possible for you to comment on which will be the best option new H1B vs H4-EAD. 

Looking forward to read your reply/comments. Thanks a lot in advance.
