H4 to H1


Recommended Posts


I am currently on H4EAD and it is valid until 07/2020.

My employer has filed for my H1B cap exempt extension and it is currently in process.  I think my employer has filed it as visa to be issued abroad and not as a change of status.

Here are my questions

  • If the H1B gets approved, can i still keep on working on H4EAD or it is invalid at that point?
  • If the answer to first question is no. Do i have to leave the country and get my stamping done in order to start working on H1B?
