I am a U.S. citizen and I sponsored by brother for a green card a few years ago. He is applying for an H1B visa at the consulate. Do I need to withdraw the family-based case before he applies for the visa?


No, there normally would be no need to withdraw a family-based case for someone who is applying for an H1B visa. A pending family-base case typically would have no impact on the H1B visa process.  (23.Mar.2022)
