  • H4 to F1 Conversion

    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 ..

                Best way to look for prospective employers is to sign up as job seeker at http://desiopt.com/myjobs/signup.php and speak directly to prospective employers. Also, you can sign up in other job portals.

                  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!!!
