US Visas: Going from H1 to F1 status [#permalink] New post 14 May 2012, 15:02
Hi all,

I'm currently working under my H1 visa in the US. I'm starting at Wharton in August, so I plan to apply for my F1 visa in Canada (not my home country) in the coming weeks.
I've ruled out doing a change of status while remaining in the US as I need to take some time off to move. I plan to resign at work soon, however I don't want to be out of status.

I apologize if the following questions have been asked, I've been searching for answers without success:

1. Can I apply for an F1 visa while my H1 visa is still valid (until 12/2012)?
I plan to come back in the US then resign immediately (my bosses already know that I will quit very soon, so the notice is not very important).
2. If #1 is possible, will my H1 visa be cancelled? I would think so, but just want to confirm. It's just to confirm that I can't work for a few days after I'm back in the US.
3. I plan to travel to Canada while still be employed in the US. If for some reason I can't get my F1, is there any issue going back on my H1? I don't see why it would be cancelled, so just want to confirm.
4. Is there any issues applying in Canada as it is not my home country?

If you've been through this before I'd appreciate your help.

Many Thanks!
