I am looking for suggestion to apply for H1B


I am working into IT since 5 years on microsoft technologies. I have applied for F1 in the year of 2001 August in India and it got rejected under 214(b). Currently I am working in Singapore since 1+ year and now planning to apply for H1B from Singapore.

I have couple of questions regarding this:

  1. Is there any effect of F1 rejection on my H1B application?

  2. Does US embassy will maintain my record still like my qualication details and employment details?

Kindly help to me on this. Thanks in advance folks.


  1. Usually no

  2. Yes, they will. Do not lie as it can lead to rejection.
