Got RFE on H1B Consular Processing - F1-CPT status,

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I am currently pursuing PhD in Information Technology and on F1 CPT from January 2019. I initially did Masters in Computer Science and completed 3 year OPT. Last year my H1 B got denied. This year my employer filed H1B as consular processing but I received an RFE on Maintenance Status. I am wondering if I could get such RFE when I filed my H1 as consular. If yes, what are the approval rates?

Thanks,

Sandhya

In a PhD program you do research 24/7, not working with CPT. So that seems to be fraudulent CPT.

And there is no consular processing for an H1. All H1s are processed by USCIS. An H1 can be filed with consular notification.

Process could be consular/premium/general if they doubt they ask you for more evidence. Dont wry, just submit clearly what they asked, rest is not in our hands 😞

Hi,

I am in a similar situation.......I need to prove how CPT is related to my job and whether I had a full course of study?

Please let me know how your reply went.

CPT has to be required by the curriculum, not just related to the studies. It is for required internships, not for working in some arbitrary job.

Abuse of CPT will result in killing the future in the US. Concentrate on studying, not working.
