H1b-> Day 1 CPT -> H1B

Recommended Posts

I am close to completing my 6 years on H1-B. I am planning to move to a Day 1 CPT college and then apply again for H1-B lottery for 2025. 

Do i have to be necessarily out of the country for 365 days even when i am picked in lottery and want to move back to H1-B status from CPT ?

You absolutely have to be outside the country for a year before a new H1 in the lottery can be filed.

And day 1 cpt is a bad idea to begin with. It will cause problems with getting an H1 later on.
