GC Processing of F1 Students

Recommended Posts



I am currently on F1 OPT Visa and am engaged in a contracting IT job, my question is whether i can start my GC processing now through my employer? If the answer is yes, am also planning to apply for my H1B in April 2016 Quota, so can i apply for H1B while my GC application is in process and are there any chances of rejection of H1B application as my GC is in processing?


Pls advise, thanks

As far as I know, F1 is not a dual intent visa. You would not get far with GC application on F1 visa. I would wait till you get your H1B to initiate your GC process.

Appreciate your response but in case if i have to travel back to my home country while i am on OPT, is there any risk involved while returning to USA at port of entry? The reason why i ask is, the purpose of F1 visa was to complete my masters which i have already completed. In case if they ask why i am coming back to USA even after i completed my masters, what am i supposed to tell them?


Pls let me know thanks.
