Hi - What are the different status options (eg OPT, H4) from which one can transition to H1b without having to step outside the US for stamping? Thanks  

In most instances if you are in status, you can file a change of status to H1B (depending on cap-case requirements, etc.). If you have something specific to discuss, I recommend calling our Firm to discuss your specific circumstances.

I want to check on the below H-1B Visa Consular processing from India related query.

I am currently in the U.S. on my F1 Student Visa (working on CPT), and I have my H-1B work visa petition approved (i.e. consular processing – Form I797B Approval Notice).

I have been in the U.S. itself since the time the Presidential Proclamations were put in place first (which is currently effective till March 31st).

I see that Consular visa appointments are available in India now so I am planning to travel and get my H-1B visa stamped (consular processing) from India.

Query – I want to check that, once my H-1B Visa is stamped in India, if I am eligible to travel back to the U.S. before March 31st?

Please let me know.
