H1 and H4 issues

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am currently residing in the US with a H4 visa. I have applied for H1B visa last july and it is in RFE stage.My H4 visa expires on March 31,2012. To continue my stay here, my husband has added me as dependent(H4) while filing his visa extension(H1B).

I have to visit India on an urgent business. Is it possible for me to travel on my H4 visa to India and get my stamping done there? Meanwhile if my H1B gets approved, will it be a problem for me when i return?

Please help me understand the possible consequences of doing so.

There is no set time line... depends how long employer is ready to wait.. on H1 you should be paid all the time....so sooner the better but week or 2 here or there is ok

I have read certain guidelines that say upto 30 days but some ppl dont agree...

"Within how many days of getting my H1B approval should i start working?"

Assuming you never left you have 60 days to report. If you leave and come back with the H1 visa you have 30 days to report. Pay for PP so you know where you stand.
