Applied for H1 after 4 years on H4


I have applied for H1B after being on H4 for 4 years. I have worked for 4 years in India before that. I got selected in the lottery and my status is still in initial review. My question is does it really affect my approval decision because i took a long break. I understand that it’s very subjective but do any of you know H4 to H1 after a long time on H4.


As long as you qualify for the offered position, it should be fine. USCIS is not concerned about the long break. However, your potential employers and/or clients may be concerned about this.

Hey I am also on the same boat.Only difference is I will be applying for the visa this year.Can you please help me with the consultant information for h4 to h1b conversion.
