H4 to h1 COS in PP after returning back from india



I have applied H1b w/COS for my wife who is currently in H4 visa. Regular processing and she got selected in the lottery.

Now she is planning to travel to india and come back in Jul.


I think h1b may get approved without COS. After H1b approval can we apply for COS in PP?


How long does it take?

Yes, COS can be applied but not in PP. PP service is available only when COS is accompanied w/ H-1 filing. In case she changes employer then new employer can file for H-1 petition and COS in PP.
