  • B1 To H1B status change..

    Hi Experts,

    Already posted same question in B1 group.

    I came to US with B1 from India. I am employee of software company in India, same company is offering me H1B here.

    Company has applied for status change(B1 to H1B) in premium mode. I got the receipt number too.

    My B1 is expiring on Nov15th,

    I am having question here
    1)what would be my status after 15th Nov if my H1B decision is pending after 15th-Nov(After expiration of my B1 status).
    2)Is it legal to stay here with my expired I-94 as my H1B decision is pending .
    3)If I stay here after 15th Nov will this create any problems for me in future.

    Thanks in advance.

    you can stay with your reciept number
    2)Is it legal to stay here with my expired I-94 as my H1B decision is pending .
    it is legal to stay with a decisison pending , but if the decission is not in favour your stay is considered as illegal . this makes it difficult for the entry next time . If you get a approval with the fresh i-94 with hte approval notice you can continue to stay . if not you have to go out of country and comin .
    3)If I stay here after 15th Nov will this create any problems for me in future.
    See the above

        Not Advisable from B to H

        It is not advisable , especially from B to H . currnetly what kind of work you are doing ? is it a business dealing kind of or any significant work deliverables which requires a work visa ?

            I got the visa without any issues, if you have a chance with fresh application for H1 that would be better.
