H4 to H1 approved while I am out of US


Recommended Posts

I was working on H1B visa, then I switched to H4 visa.

I came to India got my H4 visa stamped and then went back to the US. As my H4 visa expired my husband,s company filed for H4 extension and the petition was approved.

While in the US, my past employer agreed to file for my H4 to H1 visa transfer. Due to a family emergency I had to fly to India, but due to some communication gap my past employer filed for my H4 to H1 visa transfer while I am in India.

My H4 to H1 visa petition has been approved while I am in India. I am currently in India and want to go back to the US and start working again.

Can I get my H4 stamped and then join my past employer once I reach the US?

If I go for H1B visa stamping now, is the possibility of H1B visa rejection high?
