So if my H1B cannot be transferred, what are my options? Can I still continue on my OPT till May 2020?
However, now that my H-1B visa petition has been approved, my intent to remain in the United States and to work for my current employer is clearly on record. Therefore, the consular officer may conclude that you no longer meet the criteria for an F-1 visa and deny your application. If you attempt to make the application and it is denied, you will not be able to return to the United States until you are able to enter pursuant to an H-1B visa on or after 10/01/2019.
