H4 to F1 CoS while H1B transfer is in progress


Recommended Posts


I am currently on H1B and in the process of getting a Change of Employer (Company B). H4 application is also filed with this new CoE application. Based on the current rules, H4 applications have to go through biometrics and that will easily take 3-4 months to get approved.

Both me and my wife have i797s based on the current H1B with the current employer (Company A).

Can she apply for change of status to F1 with the existing i797s or do we have to wait for the H1B transfer to be completed along with the new H4?
