I got H1B (I-797A) approved in September 2015 with change of status from H4 to H1 (i.e. I got I94 along with my H1B approved). But when this petition was approved, I was in India and travelled to USA on H4 visa in November 2015.
I have below questions. Can you please clarify?
- Can I apply for SSN now using my approved I-797A and I94 in it? OR do I need to apply for SSN after change of status?
- Can I work directly with my I-797A and I94 or do I need to do change of status again?
