Need Assistance on B1 to H1B
Hi Team,

I had a B1 visa with which I went to US couple times on client visits. Later with the B1 visa I went to US on 2013 and within 6 months I got my status changed from B1 Visa to F1 Student visa and continued to do my Masters and after the 1st term, I moved to a different state and different college.

I studied Master's there for a term to 2 terms and later due to mental health issues and financial issues, I couldn't continue to do my Master's, however stayed back there Out of Status as I couldn't pay the tuition fees.

I was there presumably Out of Status in US for 1.5 Years and later in 2017, I came back to India for good and none questioned my return back to India.
Also, during my entire stay in the US while I was Out of Status, none questioned me nor was I ever questioned on my status.

In couple month's time, it will be 5 years since I came back from US to India and want to know if I can apply for H1B visa in the near future, maybe in a year's time or come to US on Business Visa as I have a tie up with a company in US with my startup in India.

Kindly help me / suggest if I can travel to the US again.
