Status while H1B request to reopen a rejected case

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My H1B got denied and my employer has applied for a request to reopen. I have a few questions regarding that. I am currently on my OPT extension and it expires on Feb 8th, 2019( But my F1 visa expires in August 2019). Here are my questions:
1) If my request to reopen doesn't get approved, how long can I stay in USA.
2) If my request to reopen gets approved, But the decision is not finalized, how long can I stay then.
3) If my request to reopen gets approved, But the decision is not finalized and if I have to leave US by feb 8th, will my request be void.

even though no update on the case

Oh God!! This is really crazy. You have been waiting since Jan-2018 for the decision. I hope you really get an answer soon. Have you applied H1 this year?? I submitted MTR+Appeal on 12/19/2018. CSC forwarded to appeals office on 1/4/2019. It’s been 6 months and no updates since then. Planning to submit a service request by the end of this month. As per USCIS, Appeal’s office has to take a decision within 180 days once it’s transferred to them.
