Changing status from B2 to B1 while in USA

Recommended Posts


I am already in US on my vacation on B2 Visa. My employer asked me to attend few business meetings and present a demo, as I am already in US, so they can close a contract. I entered into USA to travel around and see places and meet relatives on B2 visa.

Could some one advice, how to convert my B2 visa into B1 while I am in US. I could see the details of "No need to change status from B1 to B2 if the puspose chnage after entering into US" on USCIS website. But I didn't find information related to changing status from B2 to B1. Does the same rule apply for vice versa as well?

Is it legal to attend business meetings while I am on B2 without changing my status to B1.

Let me make it clear, its certainly not WORKING and I traveled earlier on B1 for attending business meetings and convention. And its similar job and not of H1B worker.

Thanks for your time in reading my query and helping me understand the right solution.
