I-140 Grace Period

Recommended Posts



I have an approved I-140, lost my job on April 30th. My 60 day grace period ends on June 29th.


Found an employer willing to take my H1B but the hiring process is slow. There is a reasonable chance that I would have an accepted offer going through background check by the time my grace period ends. Can I possible change to a tourist or student visa while my new employer completes the background and files for change of status. Is that an acceptable option?
