F1 to H1B Problem


Recommended Posts


I am currently on F1 visa. This semester is my last semester and I will be graduating in May, 5th 2013. Also currently working fulltime under CPT in a company. The company wants to apply for H1-B for me in April 1st. They told me that they need my OPT card to attach to my application while filing the H1-B petition in April.

I have applied for OPT in Feb 19th and received the notice of action (I-797C) but have not received the OPT card yet. It is still under review.

I was wondering, is opt card needed for filing the H1-B? Can't they use the receipt number in I-797C?
