Status Issue!


Recommended Posts


I am going to finish my graduation by april 30. My company is filing my H1B on April 1, 2012. If it is approved, I am going to start work by October 1.

My question is during the period from May to Oct., whether I am out of status or I am fine because I already filed for H1B.

Please help me regarding this one.

Thank You

If you can't use OPT, you have 60 days after you finish your studies to leave the country. Having an H1 doesn't change that, if the H1 starts on Oct. 1. You would still have to leave, get an H1 visa, and you can enter with the H1 visa up to 10 days before the H1 starts.
