* B1 visa limitations
 #846941

  Hi everyone,

I got my B1 visa while applying for CS , for which I entered US first time and stayed for 2 months and went back to home country after 5 months I re-entered US and stayed for 6 months for research and volunteer works now my question is : My PI wants me back as soon as possible , and what time period says weeks or months is a good time or gap to stay in home country before re entering US for another 6 months so that I dont have problems when I seek for H1/J1 for my residency next year. Or it doesnt matter what time I spent in my home country as H1/J1 will be from university/ programme and it wont be rejected.

Does anyone who stayed on B1 for 6 months and had problems during H1?

Any suggestion will be highly appreciated as Visa laws are getting so difficult day by day, I want to minimize any pitfalls for future.
Thank you

  The legislation introduced today reflects many of the policy principles and priorities identified by DHSís frontline personnel which the Administration has advocated for this past year. I look forward to working with Members as they consider this and other legislation that will help us secure our borders, provide necessary enforcement authorities, and end diversity visas and extended family chain migration.

The Administrationís visa restrictions and changes to the DACA program will have a significant impact on the Match. NRMP expects more than 42,000 applicants to register for the 2018 Main Residency Match. That number includes both U.S. citizens and foreign nationals. In addition, almost 5,000 programs participate in the Main Residency Match, offering 32,000 training slots. Ranking for the 2018 Match opens on January 15, and the Rank Order List Deadline is February 21. There also are Fellowship Matches occurring monthly. Training for all programs typically begins on or about July 1.
Applicants affected by the visa restrictions or who are beneficiaries of the DACA program already are applying for and interviewing at residency and fellowship programs, even though it is not certain they will be permitted to enter or remain in the U.S. by the start of training. That uncertainty leaves programs the choice of not ranking qualified applicants or risking empty training slots on their program start date. The affected applicants have worked hard for many years to achieve their goal of becoming physicians, and they should not be denied that opportunity because of policies that do not consider the individual. Similarly, U.S. training programs should be able to select applicants based on their excellent character and qualifications, without regard to nationality. Both applicants and programs benefit from an orderly process for entry into graduate medical education. The Administrationís proposed changes disrupt that process very considerably. As for the current Match cycle, NRMP encourages applicants and programs to make the best decisions they can under existing circumstances. For its part, NRMP will be liberal in granting waivers to applicants and programs if they cannot meet their respective Match obligations because of the effects of the visa restrictions or changes to t

  Much will depend on what the reason for your stays in the United States is, and whether the immigration officer thinks that you're trying to live in the United States. The general advice given to most people is not to cumulatively spend more than six months out of any twelve in the United States in a visitor status B-1, not only to avoid the appearance of attempting to immigrate.
