I already have B1/B2 then I got my H1B approved recently. My company was asking me to go sometime on the 3rd Q for a business trip. I was thinking if it is possible to not come out of the US and change the status in the US to use my H1-B visa come October.
I have not gone thru the stamping of the visa on my passport yet as I was just informed that the visa has been granted.
Sounds like the continuation of the scheme presented in the previous question. Am afraid your scenario will not work,UNLESS your H-1B was approved as a change of status (COS). Highly doubtful, since you were not even present at the time the H-1B petition was filed on your behalf.
