H4 to H1

Recommended Posts


I am on H4 and I do have the EAD aswell. It is going to end in June , so I even applied for the extension in last year Dec'19 and it is in process. 

Meanwhile, last year I have applied for H1 and got approval in Feb'20 but as I traveled out of US while it is in process, COS got invalid and I will have to get the stamping done to activate my H1.  I even made visa appointment but due to COVID pandemic I am thinking of postponing the appointment. 

My question is ,

1.  if my H4 extension gets approved before I go for H1 stamping , can I still activate it by going for a stamping or does it get invalid?

Thank you for any suggestions or ideas.
