請問在美國的水水:

我和我的好朋友於今年五月以B2簽證進美國,當時移民官給我們六個月的時效.
我們來美國玩並探望在此留學工作的朋友後,因緣際會下我們剛好都找到雇主並且在B2六個月到期前,收到INS的H1 approval notice,成功轉換為H1.

我們想今年聖誕節回台灣,之前看到一些在美國的姊妹熱心回答有關回台灣換簽證的問題.但律師建議我們最好不要回台灣換,因為美國在台協會很可能會拒換簽證而導致我們回不了美國,因為我們當時是申請B2,而如今卻換成H1.

但難道我們就因為如此,不能回台灣了嗎?

好想家的Sara

Hello Sara,
我認識幾位朋友當初也是到了美國之後才換身份
由B2 轉成 F1 或 H1
之後確實好多年都不敢回國
有人大膽一試, 回去之後卻無法順利回美
也有人順利取得簽證的轉換
所以律師的顧慮是對的

除非妳真的打算等到拿到綠卡後 (那是一條更漫長的路, 尤其是 911之後) 才回台灣
否則建議妳回台一試
但必須做好充份的心理準備

看了好多同學朋友的例子,
滯留在美, 無法自由進出是真的很痛苦的...

妳在那一州呢?

謝謝Phil+Phonenix這麼詳細的回答,

我現在在Ohio.我還是想回台灣一趟換簽證,因為不想一直滯留在美, 無法自由進出,真的很痛苦.

那請問你們知道回台AIT換工作簽證要準備什麼文件?我上AIT網站查詢都找不到換工作簽證到底要準備什麼文件,填什麼表.

我不是很清楚回台換工作簽證應其備那些文件,
建議妳諮詢妳的律師,
尤其是最近, INS 的各項程序一直在更改
凡事都應謹慎

.. 我最近也在跟 INS "打扙" 呢!
but different case from yours.


祝妳一切順利

Specialty Occupations (H-1B) and Dependents (H-4)
Updated: November 2002

Employers in the United States who require the temporary services of an alien worker in a specialty occupation must file a Form I-129, Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker, with the Immigration and Naturalization Service. Once the H-1B specialty occupation petition is approved, the applicant may apply at the American Institute in Taiwan. Applicants holding passports from places other than Taiwan should apply in person at the nonimmigrant visa unit between 7:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Applicants who hold a Taiwan passport need not apply in person but must be physically present in Taiwan. To apply for an H-1B visa, applicants should submit the following documents to AIT’s nonimmigrant visa unit between 7:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.:

1. A valid passport signed by the bearer
2. A completed application form DS-156 and one photo taken within the past six months. On the application form please be sure to include a telephone number in Taiwan where you can be contacted.
3. Male applicants between the ages of 16 and 45 must also submit a completed form DS-157, Supplemental Nonimmigrant Visa Application.
A non-refundable NT$3,600 visa application processing fee receipt
4. All old passports and/or I-20s
5. A copy of the petition your employer filed for you. This is called form I-129
6. The original INS Notice of Approval form number I-797
7. Prior holders of J visas who are subject to the two-year Taiwan residency provision should provide evidence that they have either fulfilled the residency requirement or have obtained a waiver.
8. Spouses and children under age 21 of H-1B visa holders or H-1B visa applicants also do not need to apply in person as long as they hold a Taiwan passport. H-4 visa applicants should submit the following documents:

9. A valid passport signed by the bearer

非常謝謝Koala-Boston如此熱心.按你的指示,我已找到AIT的H1B詳細資料.

目前,除了已準備好AIT要求的H1B相關資料,仍有幾個問題想請教你.

1. 你當時回AIT換工作簽證,須要出示你在美國的 paycheck嗎?
2. 須要我公司老闆寫一張letter證明我在該公司上班嗎?或公司派我回台灣出差嗎?
3. 你當初跟AIT移民官面試時,他問了什麼問題?

非常感謝你的回答和幫助!
