Delay of O1 Start Date after Visa Stamping


Recommended Posts



Thanks so much for advising my wife to go ahead with her O1 application - she got it approved! She just got it stamped last week with a start date of Nov. 15th. Due to a personal situation, she will not be able to join work until the first week of January. Two questions I can't seem to find an answer for:


1. Is there a deadline within which one should join after visa stamping (like 90 days for F1 visa)?

2. Is there a maximum number of days between the start date stamped on the visa and the actual start date (in my wife's case, it will be 52 days)?


Your help will be most appreciated.
