    Default Will an Unused F1 Visa Affect H1B Eligibility

    If a foreign national applies for and receives a F1 visa, but decides not to attend college in the U.S., but later is hired by an employer that wants to hire the person and sponsor a H1B visa for that person, will the unused F1 visa be a problem? Will the issue come up during a H1B interview?

    Default Re: Will an Unused F1 Visa Affect H1B Eligibility

    It's a non-issue. There is no requirement that, having obtained a visa, you proceed to use it. Plans change.

    If the issue comes up, as it's obviously what happened, indicate that your plans changed and that you decided to start or continue to work instead of pursuing the degree.
