Status if H1B approves but COS is denied

Recommended Posts

Hello,

What is the visa status of a person if his H1B petition approves but COS (F1 to H1) is denied ?

Does he continue on F1( F1 remains valid ) till the individual goes out of country and gets his visa stamped and returns back ) or is his SEVIS terminated the moment H1B approves ?

I applied for H1B (currently on F1) and got an RFE , replied to the RFE September 23rd /today (premium processing) so expecting a response in 15 days .

Currently on F1 status with an I20 validity till October 8th 2015 , so wondering if my H1 approves by then but COS is denied what to do .....

Any help please

Thanks

Aha , so I have to leave before the I20 expires ?

But wouldn't my SEVIS terminate as soon as my H1B approves ?

So say even if I20 has 1 year left is it of any use ?

Thanks

Well even if I have a valid I20 for say 1 more year , wouldn't my SEVIS terminate the moment my H1B approves ?

My I94 has validity for D/S

Do you think i need to extend my I20 (by enrolling in another course) ?

Please let me know

Thanks

Nishant
