Default Visitor VISA

Hello,

I am holding a valid H1-B visa which was stamped in 2007. But before i could make my travel plan i could see recession hitting US and people out of jobs. This made me to hold back my job at home instead of quitting in a hurry.

Now i am based in UK on an assignment and i would like to VISIT USA as a TOURIST for 4 weeks to see my brother.

1) Am i allowed to visit as a visitor ?
2) Can i still hold H1-b visa active without being cancelled ?


Anybody, please could you advise me how to go about.

thanks
Vinsug

Default Yes

Your H1-B visa (just an entry permit) remains active until expiration date.
You can get a visitor visa and visit your brother.
