Pending H4 to O1A COS approved and then H4 approved

Need your advice on the below scenario.
My O1A petition was approved as a Change of Status. I already sent a H4 withdrawal request letter to USCIS and was waiting for their response on the withdrawal, I received an approval copy of my H4.

What is my current status – O1A or H4 ? Do I need to do any additional communication with USCIS ?

  • H4 Extension filed - August 3, 2021
  • O1A Petition Filed - October 1, 2021
  • O1A Petition approved as a COS- October 14, 2021
  • H4 Withdrawal letter sent to USCIS – January 10, 2022
  • H4 Withdrawal Letter received at USCIS- January 14, 2022
  • H4 Approval Letter received – February 14, 2022

H4 extension of status after a change of status from H4 to O1A doesn’t really mean anything except it will fill in any gap between H4 I-194 expiry and effective start date of change of status to O1A.

Most probably the start date on the H4 extension of status approval notice will be same as the date your H4 I-94 expired and before the change of status to O1A effective start date.

You should be currently in O1A status. I don’t think there are any action items at your end.
