B1 to H1 conversion


Recommended Posts

The quota is not for India, but for all countries. It is possible to change status if you have an H1 visa available, however, the H1 limit for 2013 (status may start in Oct 2012) has been reached. You can only get a new H1 starting Oct 2013, for which your employer should file in the spring of next week.

Technically it is possible to change status from B1 to H1B, however the specifics of your circumstances will determine the best course of action. You should also be aware the current H1B cap for fiscal year 2013 has been reached. Therefore, it is advisable to speak directly with a qualified U.S. immigration attorney to discuss any opportunities available to you.
