want to abandon H1 before OCT 1st


Recommended Posts


I am on STEM OPT and my H1 got APPROVED recently but I lost that project.

My status will change from F1 to H1 from OCT1st, but  I want to stay in F1 status only. I do not want to transfer my H1 too.

If I travel before Sep 28th and renter on Oct 3rd. Does that mean I abandon H1 visa and can reenter using F1 visa and travel I20 ?
