Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am currently on student visa and got my H1b approval however I need to visit India for stamping to get approval for change of status.  The project I was working on has ended before my approval. How do I attend the interview with no active project ?

Please advise.

Thanks a lot !

You are not required to visit India to get your change of status effective, it is already done from the day your H1B start, so if you really don't want to go to India then avoid the trip.

If you are in India already then do not appear for the visa interview till you get a new project else it will be straight rejection with some trouble consequences.

Thanks a lot ! .  Do I have some flexibility for finding a new project  anywhere  in US or just the locations mentioned in my LCA ?

Yes you can join a new project any where in USA, if new project is in different MSA then your employer requires to file an amendment for H1B, once it is approved you can visit India and get your stamping done.
