Thank you very much. Kindly remember that I do not get a salary here. Your positive rating is the only way I am rewarded for doing my job. So please do not forget to give me 3 or more stars, or any smiling faces, before leaving the site today. Thank you!
ANSWER: Yes, if you received an I-94 with your H1B approval, and you are in the US on the validity date of the I-94, you automatically change your status to H1B on October 1.
I hope I have answered your questions. I aim to give you excellent service, even if the outcome is not what you wanted. So I am happy to answer any related follow-up questions you might have, at no additional charge.
And if you want to talk on the phone for 30 minutes, I can send you an offer for that.
Once you have received an answer, please help me get credit for doing my job, by giving me a positive rating of 3, 4 or 5 stars or any of the smiling faces. You can still ask more questions, even after you’ve given a rating.
A BONUS is also appreciated if you feel I've earned it.
And if you have questions in the future, write FOR JAMES in the question and I will be your personal Expert in this category.
