Status if H1B approves but COS is denied


Recommended Posts


What is the visa status of a person if his H1B petition approves but COS (F1 to H1) is denied ?

Does he continue on F1( F1 remains valid ) till the individual goes out of country and gets his visa stamped and returns back ) or is his SEVIS terminated the moment H1B approves ?

I applied for H1B (currently on F1) and got an RFE , replied to the RFE September 23rd /today (premium processing) so expecting a response in 15 days .

Currently on F1 status with an I20 validity till October 8th 2015 , so wondering if my H1 approves by then but COS is denied what to do .....

Any help please
