I am pursuing MS and It is my third semester. My current H4 visa is valid till April 2020 and My spouse H1 and my H4 extension are in progress.
- Can I apply COS from H4 to F1 while the H4 extension is in progress?
- If I travel India or Canada to get F1 stamping and return to the United States in F1 visa while H4 extension is in progress. Would my H4 extension petition be abandoned as soon as I leave the country? If not and H4 extension gets approved after returning to the US on F1. will I continue to be in F-1 status based on my most recent entry in the US or my status will be H4 as per “Last Action Rule”.
An early response would be highly appreciated.
