Self H1B Application


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

My H1B is about to expire the end of this year and so is my present position at my employer (as it was subject to a two year contract only).. I am looking for job elsewhere but haven't had any luck yet. I was looking at my options and wanted some guidance.

1. Can I apply for a new H1B on my own without an employer sponsoring me, so that I can still be in status in the country ? is this possible ?

2. Before the completion of my OPT, my H1B got into effect and hence I didn't complete the 12 months of OPT. Can I go back to the OPT status ? Can I also apply for the 17th month extention to the same OPT ? My field of study is sciences..

3. Or should I switch to H4 (my husband has a valid h1b till 2015) and keep looking for job this way ?

Thank You for your help
