H4 to H1B status change

Recommended Posts

My H1B petition was valid from 2015-2017 and H1-B visa valid from 2016-2017. I never traveled to US on same. Renewal for same was applied from India, but got a denial in 2019.

I am now planning to go on H4, as my spouse's dependent who is currently working in US on H1-B.

1) Will I be able to apply for a new H1-B under non-cap category?

2) Are IT companies / Consultancy in US considering this type of cases for applying H1-B under non-cap?

2) Will my H4 status get effected by any chance, if my H1-B application in non-cap does not go through?

Thanks & Regards,
