H1B to J1 - Residency


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am currently on H1B sponsored by my  University last year in May 2020 and am still due for stamping. 

I am currently interviewing for residency and all the programs have mentioned that they only sponsor J1. 

Can you please suggest the best way to approach this?

1. Will I still need my H1b stamping in case I match to J1 residency?

2. H1b to J1 conversion - Is it better to go to India and get the process done or apply for a change of status from here?
