Stamping from B1 to H1

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I came to US in B1 on Mar 2019 and then got offer from my new employer. My new employer filed my H1 transfer and Change of status and my H1 was approved and the start date is from May 2019 and my working now with my new employer.
Now I am planning to bring my family (spouse and son) from India by going back to India.
I have scheduled my Visa Interview with my family on Aug 2019.

Please let me know if there is any complications for getting visa approval and stamping?


Thanks,
Krishnan

Hmm, that doesn't make sense.

Did you have an H1 before? A new H1 (unless it is cap-exempt) can only start in October.

You need to provide more details.

Nobody can give you acciurate % answer of success in your case. The good olden days of gtting visa stamping for every case is gone. Now they are following the rule of law more strictly. If your case is clean you will get it. Plan your stay accordingly and all the best.

My advice ask your family to go for H4 visa interview and ask them to travel to USA instead of you going to India. Avoid your travel if possible.

Yes, I had my previous H1  from 2009 to 2012 in which I used only 3 three months. Now , I got my new H1 approved from May 2019 for 2 years.

I worried on what kind of questions I will facing regarding travelled on B1 and changing status to H1.

Came to US in B1 and got my H1 and change of status approved, Hope I followed the rule of law and I will be travelling to India before my I-94 (B1) expires and planned for visa interview and stamping with my family.
