H1B Consular Stamping while working on OPT


Recommended Posts

I am currently working on OPT EAD valid till Jan 2022.  My Employer filed for my H1B which was approved for Consular processing in Dec 2019.  Due to Covid situation and closure of Consulates,  I am unable to travel to my Home Country India and schedule my appointment for the required consular interview/ Stamping.  

Under these circumstances :

(1) How Long I can continue to work on OPT EAD while a H1B is already approved and waiting to be stamped - 

(2) Is there any legal deadline before which I should go for H1B Stamping

(3) Is it advisable to file an amendment on H1B requesting for extension of stay / issuance of I-94 so I can  continue to stay and work in US on H1B
