H1 to H4 and again H4 to H1

Recommended Posts



My 6 years of H1 are ending in end of march and my employer delayed my Green Card paperwork so I wont be getting any extension based on PERM pending unless my I-140 is approved . Mean while I will be changing status from H1 to H4.

I know for the fact I can file fresh H1 after 1 year.


Does it mean I can file in April 2016 quota which will allow me to work after Oct 2016 ( if approved ) ? Are there any options besides ?

You need to be outside US for 1 year before a cap subject H1B petition can be filed to fresh 6 years. Staying in US on H4 will not help if you plan to take this route.
