I just had few related questions that are pretty specific to my situation
Here are the situation:
- I am currently on OPT and have made request for extension for STEM OPT
- Was picked in 2021 H-1B lottery. My firm and attorney said given STEM OPT, I will be going through consular notification
Here are my questions:
- If I get H-1B consular notification, can I travel abroad and come back as STEM OPT, meaning do I not have to change to H-1B while I am on 2 year STEM OPT?
- If I have consular notification H1B approved but am still working as STEM OPT status, can I change the employer/firm and change myself to H1B?
Thank you very much! These answers will help me greatly!
