Can I work until October 1 without renewing my current CPT?

Hi Saurabh,

I’ve just received my approval notice for H1B visa. Currently, I am on CPT, which ends on August 27. Can I work until October 1, the starting date of my H1B? Or, should I renew my CPT for one more month? Please advise. (I have used my OPT with my previous school).

Thank you in advance,


If CPT expires, then you need to stop working. If CPT can be renewed, then go for it and get it renewed.

Thank you very much for your answer!
