  • Is it safe to enter on B2 then look for employer to petition me for H1B ?

    Is it safe to enter US on B2 visa then look for sponsor to petition me for H1B without departing US I'll just stay for the H1B approval or I must depart and wait for it in my home country?
    What are the consequences if I'll wait for the H1B be approved there in U.S.?
    Will it affect my changing to green card then?

      It depend on the job you are sponsored with and the amount of processing time.If the processing time is not done and your B2 stay is up, you may be forced to leave and wait for it from your country of origin.B2 extensions may help but it is no guarantee unless the processing times are on time for a working visa.As long as you are in status, it wont affect your green card process

        You can look for a job while here on the B1 visa but can stay only for the period it is valid .You cannot stay here when the b1 expires and the h1b is being processed.And supposing you get the h1b processed when you are here (while the b1 is valid),you still have to leave the country before you can get it revalidated/stamped on ur passport.
