Moving to H4 while not knowing if H1B is selected in lotter


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I'm currently on OPT ext. valid thru April 30th and i'm planning to file for H1B this year. I have few questions about the COS during H1B pending application:


1) Can i get a CAP GAP extension until May 30th from school if i provide them with Fedex receipt showing my H1B application delivery to USCIS?

2) Even by May 30th, if i don't know if my H1B application is selected in the lottery can i go abroad and convert to H4 visa, since i will be out of status from June 1st?

3)Once i'm back to US on H4 visa and i get a receipt saying my H1B is picked up in the lottery. Will USCIS still process my H1B application considering now i'm on H4 visa?

4) Will i have any issues going for H4 stamping when i submitted my H1B application?


Thanks for your help!
