Holding H4 & F1 Visa

Recommended Posts


I am having valid H4 Visa (Issued in Dec'2022 and valid till Sep'2024). Travelled to USA in Sep'2023 and came back to India in Nov'2023. Now, I have F1 Visa interview scheduled on 11th Jan'2024 for Summer intake (classes start from 15th May'2024). My question is if i get F1 Visa stamped next week then can i come to USA on existing H4 Visa on 26th Jan 2024? I would like to exit and re-enter USA in April 2024 for studying on F1 Visa.

Is there any issues at Port of entry? Will Immigration officer says F1 Visa is latest so i should not come to USA before 30 days of classes start date.  

Does USCIS cancel existing H4 visa while issuing F1 Visa?

Thanks for your reply in advance.
