Change to Other Non-immigrant Status

E-2 holders may change status to another non-immigrant status, such as H-1, J-1, F-1 or B-1, but they should be cautious when doing so. Using the E category as a stepping stone to a different non-immigrant status for the purpose of avoiding the more stringent application procedures associated with the new status is improper. The USCIS considers such an act to be fraudulent, since the alien failed to disclose the actual reason for seeking the E visa. In such instances, serious ramifications may result, such as exclusion and/or removal from the United States. In addition, such behavior could make it extremely difficult to obtain another visa for entry into the United States in the future.
