Hi,

I am currently on h4 visa and i am planning to start my masters program in spring 2014. I am planning to apply for F1 visa after I join the university.

Can i travel to my home country while this process of conversion is taking place.

For instance, if i start the process of conversion from h4 to f1 in jan 2014, can i travel to my home country in april/june. Kindly reply.

Thanks in advance.

while F1 is still in the process, you cannot go outside the country.

1 when cos is pending there is potential risk of denial if u step out of country .. i recommend u suggestion ..
2 if cos is approved then you need to go for stamping ..
remember some schools want you to be at least 1 full yr of status on F1 to approve opt i20 ..

You should not leave usa, soon after u apply for f1. Instead u can apply after u get back from india. U could enroll in college on H4, and pay instate tuition if F1 did not get approved on time!!!
