wzlol Posted May 3, 2022 Report Share Posted May 3, 2022 I am planning to step outside the US to get F1 visa in advance for master study, and then returning back to the US with my H1B Visa to continue working; When it is near the start of class, I will resign, exit and then enter the US on my F1 Visa. The key point is that whether H1B visa can still be valid (not stamped with CWOP I assume?) when I am issued with an F1 Visa, and I really hope to have some advice regarding legality here. My research: according to 9 FAM 403.9-2(c), it seems only visa of the same classification is mutually exclusive, but not sure if it fits in H1B and F1 case. (Have consulted several lawyers, but their answers all vary. It would be great if anyone can supplement the answer with any legal reference 🙂 ) Thank you very much for reading! Quote Link to comment
