kssoni posted a topic in H1B : GeneralHello All, My H1B got approved in first attempt. However maybe based on PO or some other document (I am not sure which one), it is valid for 4 months only. My employer have already started preparing for extension. Currently, I am on my STEM OPT extension with 18+ months left. Looking at the current approval rate, - Should I continue STEM OPT and let go approved H1B? Is it even possible to choose between them? if yes, are there any consequences? - Also, if extension will not get approved, does it mean I need to be in lottery again or after going back India I can file new H1 with different employer. Thank you.
