I recently converted from F1 OPT to H4 and H4 EAD. My F1 OPT is valid till Jan 2017.
Thinking it might be delayed, to be on safe side I applied for future effective date from 11/25/2016. USCIS has honored the same in both the cases. So both my H4 visa approval and H4 EAD approval start from 11/25 valid till 6/2018.
Now I am thinking of travelling to India as I might be changing jobs. What happens now at H4 stamping? Should I travel only after 11/25 or is it fine to travel before and get a H4 stamping and then I can use the H4 EAD effective 11/25. Is COS approval to H4 and H4 stamping different or how does it work?
Thanks for your help.
