H1 to H4 to H1 for PhD


Recommended Posts


I have a PhD from a US University and am currently a post-doctoral fellow on an H1B for the last 1.5 years. I want to know what the trade-offs are if I go on an H4 for a couple of months and look for a job. Would I be able to go back on an H1B easily given my education and work experience in the US?

I just lost the opportunity for a job thanks to a delayed prevailing wage determination process...my future employers withdrew their job offer. I want to go on an H4 right now so I can join my husband and now worry about annoying visa issues. However, I don't want to lose the opportunity to work in the US later.

Any advice?
