laid off on OPT.

Recommended Posts


I was working on OPT which expired end of March. My employer had filed for H1B which was approved starting 1st of April.

Now I have been laid off. My question is how long can i stay in the country? Do I still get 60 days after end of March or end of March should be my last day in the country?

Is my H1B still valid and if i find a new employer in the meantime can they just transfer the H1B from my old employer or do they have to file a new application for change of status from OPT to H1B?

Thanks for help
