I am currently on h4 visa and i am planning to travel to India for a month or two during April 2013 until may end or June beginning. Can I apply for h1 from US and travel to India? If approved before I return back to US, do I need to go for stamping in India? It’s very important that I travel to India at least by end of April 2013. What are the chances of my h1 getting approved by the time I return back in may? Please clarify.
