Student Visa Question - Please Help! (H1+F1 @ thesame time) [#permalink]
16 Mar 2012, 18:26
I had a quick question regarding holding an H-1B and an F-1 visa at the same time. I currently work in the United States and I am on an H-1B (my H-1B visa expires in late 2014), and I will be going to India for my F-1 stamping. Suppose that I get my F-1 visa - can I request that my H-1B visa also be remain in my passport and that they not cancel my H-1B visa? My plan is below - is this feasible?
My plan is as follows:
1. Go to India for F-1 stamping, while maintaining the H-1B at the present employer. 2. Get the F-1 visa stamp, and request them to not cancel the H-1B visa stamp that is in my passport because I want to go back to my company and formally resign and give them a 2 weeks notice/transition period 3. Come back to the US on H-1B visa, tell my employers I am resigning and work in the US for 2 weeks (which is our standard notice period). 4. Leave the US after 2 weeks. Employer will now withdraw the H-1B, and I'll come back to the US in July/August, when the F-1 visa begins.
Can the above be done? If so, at what point will the H-1B be cancelled? Will it be cancelled at port of entry in Step 3 above?
