Here is the situation. I am in US since 2009 on J1 Visa.
My J1 status expires on August 30th, 2012.
I have already received my Approval Notice for H1 B and Change of Status ( i 94 ) which are valid from 1st October, 2012.
Here are the questions.
Can I travel to my home country in July and apply for the H1b Visa stamping ?
On which Visa Status can I re enter US ? J1 or H1b ?
If I re enter on J1 visa, how will get my I 94 for H1 b ?
Have you ever been through such situation or heard about it?
I have got many mixed responses from everywhere and I am totally confused now. Please help.
