I’m very confused and in tough spot. I’ve travel to India for urgent family matter in October 2016 for 15 days. I’ve a full time job with a big reputed company and holds valid F1-OPT till December 2017. Recently, my H1B also got approved, though I would have changed my F1 to H1B status. But there are no Visa Interview dates available in India for whole month of October. Please advise and help:
Can I return to US on my current F1 OPT without changing status to H1B? Is there a way to get interview dates at US consulate? Any hacks or way around?Background: Valid F1 visa till Dec 2017 and valid OPT (EAD) card till August 2017. Have a full time job in silicon valley with big-name company. H1B got approved in April 2016 lottery and just received confirmation.
Please help and advise. Much thanks to everyone in advance.
