Is it possible to do H4 Conversion to h1b visa for 2013.


The H1 cap for 2013 is closed.

My wife has got the H4 visa. If i want to convert it into H1 visa will that fall under the H1 cap allocated for the year or conversion will be part someother count.

Kindly advise.

There is no “conversion” of H4 to H1B. Your wife needs to file a fresh H1B petition that falls under the next year quota, FY2014, which starts on or around 1st April, 2013.
