O1 Visa: Job Resignation and Return to home country

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm on O1 Visa working with an employer. My wife is on (dependent) O3 visa. Our Visas are valid till Jan 2021. But due to family reasons, I plan to voluntarily resign from my job and return to India (home country) in mid-2020, i.e. before the end date of Visa or I-94. I will need around 3-4 weeks to wrap up things: Apartment, car, other stuff etc.

Do I get the 60-day grace period after my last day at work? If yes, is there any legal forms/procedure that I need to do to get this?

Thank you! Appreciate help in this.

It looks like O is one of the visa categories that qualifies for a 60 day grace period of end of employment.
