My Wife was on H4 Visa and she applied for a change of Status from H4 to F1 while in the US. She travelled to India and had to attend the Visa interview to get her F1 Visa stamped.
During the interview , A query was issued requesting for additional documentation. She submitted all the required documents. By the time her case was reviewed and F1 visa was approved , she had already missed 3 weeks of classes at school. Since she could not cope up, a request was placed with ISS and DSO to defer her quarter by 3 months.
According to F1 regulations, A student can enter US only 1 month before the school quarter/semester starts. So she had to stay back for 45 days in India until 1 month before the quarter. Please help me answer the following questions I have
- Instead of wating for such a long time, can she enter US with the existing H4 Visa
Will it be an problem if you enter US on H4 Visa while also having valid F1 Visa on passport?
- If yes to point 1, Can we reapply for the change of status from H4 to F1 in the US. Will it be a problem again while applying for COS?
