From B1 to H1/F1

Recommended Posts

Hello

Two diff replies. .which one shall I consider..@jairichi-which are other visas I can file besides H/F/L1?

While in US on B1 an employer can file a H1B petition for you. But, once your period of stay on B1 expires you need to exit US. Later with an approved H1B visa and I797 you can enter US.

Hi,

 

I am also in same situation as pari29 my question here is about the employer.

 

We can file H1B with any employer when we are on B1? or else only the employer who is working currently on B1?

 

Could ypu please confirm this?

 

Thanks,

Bajarang

You gave the impression that you wanted to change status here after coming over on a B1  or  B2 ? visa and usually and generally you will need to leave and get the appropriate visa and then return at the appropriate time. If visa avoidance was not the intention then Jairichi has given you the facts.

Ok

If I stay back on 'waiting for b1 extension'..I d not be considered illegal?

You will not get a B1 extension unless you have very specific reason for USCIS to approve. If you leave after B1 ext denial your B1 visa is automatically void.
