I'm in US on H4 currently. My H4 visa is valid till
Hi, I'm in US on H4 currently. My H4 visa is valid till 04/03/2017. My H4 extension application has been already received by USCIS on Jan 5th'2017.Currently I'm enrolled in MS (computer science) and in my second semester as a full time student. I have following doubts regarding my visa..1) While my H4 decision is still pending with USCIS and meanwhile I go out of country- United States and go to my home country, then will my H4 extension application be automatically abandoned/cancelled? What will happen if I try to apply for F1 from my home country once H4 extension application has been automatically abandoned/cancelled? 2) Is it possible for me to get my H4 visa extension approval, get H4 visa stamped from my home country, and then apply for F1 from my home country without coming back to US again. Is there any risk to first get valid H4 extension and then again apply for F1 (this in case F1 get rejected due to some reason, I believe I will still have valid H4 visa to travel back). … read more
