I have an approved H1B petition, but am stuck in India and am subject to the executive order. I do not believe I qualify for any of the exceptions. However, I do have a B-1 visa. Can I enter on B-1 and then change to H1B?


A person may not normally enter the U.S. on a B-1 visa with the intention of changing status to H1B. (26.Aug.2020)
