H1B Denied. MTR Related Question

Recommended Posts



My H1B petition was met with a RFE, and now, has been denied. Reason is lack of enough evidence to prove specialty occupation. My employer is ready to file a MTR and move head with next steps.


1. Does a pending MTR from my current employer restrict me from switching to another employer and apply for H1B again next year ?


2. How long does a MTS generally take to process? 


3. My OPT EAD card expired on June 15th, 2014. I had filed an OPT STEM application on May 15th, 2014 (before the expiry of the EAD). My application is still under "Initial Review" stage. Can I continue working till my new EAD arrives?  


Greatly appreciate any help !
