F1 stamping during H1B application processing


Recommended Posts

The F-1 visa is a nonimmigrant intent visa, which means the applicant must not intend to live and work in the U.S. permanently. The H-1B clasffiication is dual intent, which means the beneficiary can have the intent to remain in the U.S. permanenlty or not. If the consular officer has information that the F-1 applicant is the benficiary of an H-1B petition, it may be harder to demonstrate the requisite intent for F-1 purposes. Please schedule a consultation with a qualified immigration attorney to discuss the specific facts relating to your case and the risks involved with applying for the F-1 visa.
