H1 to F1 transfer [#permalink] New post 15 Jun 2006, 17:33
I am currently on H1 B visa working full-time. I have decided to pursue full-time MBA studies starting Fall 2006.

Does anyone know if I can still keep my H1B status and work part-time and study full-time?

How many hours do I need to work in order to keep H1 status?

How long does it take for the paper work to go through if I choose to transfer from H1 to F1?

Any help in this matter would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Bhavin

Bhavin,

Unfortunately, I'm not an expert on visa matters. You may want to consult a lawyer, ask some business schools directly, or do some searching on the U.S. government's U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) website.

Good luck,
