H1b to H4 to H1b

Recommended Posts


I was on H1b visa until March 2020. (H1 was valid till May 2021)

After job loss due to COVID, in April 2020 I filed for COS to h4 under California service center. (my spouse's h1 is valid till July 2021)

California service center shows delay of 18 months for I-539/h4 COS

1. Now, if i find a employer who can sponsor H1b, will it be possible to get it filed and approved while my h4 is pending?

2. And, after approval will it be possible to reactivate h1b without the need of Consular Processing
