60 day grace period - new employment start date later

Recommended Posts


I am currently on a 60 day grace period that ends Jan 22nd 2020. I've received a job offer from a new employer , accepted it, they initiated the LCA on 8th Jan 2020. Awaiting for its approval so that they can file my H1B petition. My question is the following:


1. If my H1B petition is filed by the new employer before end of my 60 day period, can I continue living in the US ?  (I can't join them on the receipt as they want me to wait until i get the H1B approval)

2. Will be considered to have a valid status in this case? 


Anyone who has been in a similar situation please advice.

1. Yes, you should be able to live if you have the petition filed by the end of 60 days.

2. Yes.

I am hoping you have an I94 which is valid beyond Jan 22rd?
