H1B 60 days grace post resignation

4 posts in this topic


Currently i am on bench and dont see any visiblity of projects in my company.

Wat if i resign, will i be eligible of 60 days grace period to continue my stay in US in order to look for jobs? 

If i get a job after 20 days post resignation, will there be any issues in getting my visa transferred to new employer.

Are you getting paid on bench? The law requires people on H1 getting paid all the time, even on bench.

If you don't get paid, you are out of status.

Look for a job and then return with the visa if you get approval. PLEASE do not tell me you work for one of the big four?
