aru_s Posted July 22, 2014 Report Share Posted July 22, 2014 Hi Forum! My H1-B was withdrawn on Feb 4, 2013 and the LCA was withdrawn on Feb 6, 2013. The last day of my work in the office was Jan 25th 2013. They said during the time of lay off that they won't notice the immigration dept for 2 weeks. I stayed there unemployed searching for jobs for 177 days (As per H1B withdrawn date - 4th Feb). My I-94 is still valid (Oct '14) and so is my visa stamping on my passport (September '14). Now I want to go back there for PhD with a new F1 visa. Will my unlawful presence on H1B (?) be a bar on the entry? Some said that the POE(/Immigration guys) won't count unlawful presence if it's a layoff on H1B. Is it true? Will I get a 3 yrs ban on my entry? Please help me Thank you very much. Appreciate your time & help. Best, Aru Link to comment
