h1b US visa interview


I have an h1b interview next month. I am not planning to go to US for at least next 3 years.

Is there any problem in going to US after three years? Will it lead me to greencard?

Can i use the same h1b visa after three years or do i need to file a new petition after three years?

Is it recommendable to go for the interview next month? Or will it jeopardize the chance of going after three years?

H-1B has not path to greencard - it's completely independent from it. It's typically easier to convince employer to file for green card if you were working for him on H-1B but other than that, it has nothing to do with it.

Don't know the answer to your other questions.

it's so hard to get a job and to be sponsored, i think you should apply now and work there, waiting for 3 years doen't match with the H1 b cause it's linked to a job offer, do your employer will wait for 3 years?

you are in the process of having your visa granted so you don't have it already, refusing the interview will cancell your process. you will have to restart in 3 years (with job offer and paper filled again)

while you're in the states under H1B, and during the 3 years of your visa, you can apply for a green card.
