    Exclamation Change of status from H1B to F1

    Hi All,

    My friend came to US in 2014 with a 5 year F1 visa. Later in 2016 he moved to H1B. Then in 2017 he moved back to F1 visa status. To have his SEVIS activated, with the new i20 from university, he went to the border and reentered. He is planning to go out of US, can he re enter with the same visa which is valid till 2019 or will he face problems at port of entry ?
