Changing visa status from H1B to H4 upon expiration

Recommended Posts

The second term of my H1B expires soon (~1 year). I was advised that once the 6 yrs of my H1B expires,

i have to leave the country for a year. 

 

My question is : Do I have to leave the country physically or can I stay within the country on H4 and wait a year and then apply for H1 again ?

You need to be outside US physically for a year after which an employer can file a cap subject H1B petition
