B1/B2 to H1B conversion


Recommended Posts



I am currently in USA on a B1/B2 visa and got a I-94 validity date of 6 months. However my business/training is only for 1 month.  Now my employer wanted to file H1B and start working here.


I had worked in USA here for 5 years before and there was a gap of 1 year since i return US again on B1/B2 Visa.


Can i know whether i can file H1B petition here (non lottery) so if it gets approved technically i can start working here? However i have a concern whether there will be any issues during Visa Process?


Is there any specific time period i have to be in B1/B2 status in the US before filing H1B or start working on H1B here? 


Thanks and Regards,
