About Me - I have been in USA from past 9 years, first on

About Me - I have been in USA from past 9 years, first on F-1 and now on H1-B. My PERM has been filed and hopefully it should get approved with 2 months and my employer is going to apply for I-140 in premium processing. So if everything goes smooth then I should have an approved I-140 by September.About Girlfriend - My girlfriend is currently on B1/B2 visas. Previously she was on F-1 visas while she was studying in New York and later she worked on OPT and then decided to move back to India. She has visited USA couple of times on B1/B2 visas.She is planning to visit me in July 2017 and we were thinking of getting married in July 2017 at Marriage Union Court and have all the Indian wedding ceremonies in December. She is planning to stay with me from July through October on B1/B2 visas and go back to India and apply for H-4 visas.So what are our options for H-4 visas? I guess we have 3 below options, do you agree?1. Apply for change of status from B1/B2 to H-4.2. Apply for H-4 visas directly in India in November.3. Go to Canada after I-140 is approved and get H-4 visas at a consulate.- Will she have any trouble applying for H4 visas in India since we got married in USA on B1/B2 visas?- Can she be denied entry to USA at port of entry in July if she tells the immigration officer that her purpose of visit is marriage?- Should we apply for changes of status and wait for approval? What happens if COS process is still pending and she leaves for India and apply for H4 visas in India?- Does I-94 change to H-4 after COS?- Do you think going to Canada for H-4 visas is a good option? The reason I like this option is so we can apply for H-4 EAD.- What are my best options?

I am currently filling out an application to schedule a visa

Hello. I am currently filling out an application to schedule a visa interview at the US consulate in Chennai, India. I am unclear on how to answer this question to see if I qualify for the dropbox facility: Do you have a previous H-1B visa (temporary occupation, temporary worker or trainee)?I was on H1-B visa from March 2015 to November, 2016 at Michigan State University. But I never left the US and so did not get my visa stamped on my passport.I was on a B2 visa from December 2016 to March 2017. Again, I got the approval, but did not get my visa stamped.I am currently in India. I received approval for an H1-B visa application filed by Kennesaw State University (to start in August, 2017).Since I never got my H1-B stamped on my passport, how do I answer the question mentioned above (Do you have a previous H-1B visa (temporary occupation, temporary worker or trainee)?Thanks.
