H1B Visa and tourist visa


Recommended Posts

I am residing in India currently. I have tourist visa valid from 2009 to 2019 and I have been to US twice for 2 weeks and 3 weeks. Now I have applied for H1B visa . The question is If i go for visa stamping and if the stamping gets rejected will my tourist visa gets revoked too as my visa stamping for H1B got rejected?


Thank you.

It is at the discretion of the officer. You can't have 2 different non immigrant visas that are active  at the same time.


Actually, a person can have multiple visas just fine. A person can only use one visa to enter the US in a particular status, but having multiple valid visas is absolutely ok.

In fact, I had a valid B1/B2 visa during all the time I had an H1 visa.
