First, I would like to thank Redbus2Us for helping H1 Visa holders in the USA. Your opinion and feedback help a lot of H1 folks in the country.
I would like to post this question to understand a few things.
I have been working in the US on H1 Visa. My H1 Visa will max out by Jun10 2019. My perm is going to be filed shortly and I am not sure whether I would get my Perm approved before maxing out date.
I need your suggestions on below questions.
Suppose if don’t get perm approved till the end of May, then I will be having only a few days before I get maxed out. What are your suggestions for me to handle this situation so that I can plan accordingly? Do I really need to go out of the country and get my Perm approved from outside the US?
Say if my PERM approval is delayed or I140 approval is delayed and not approved until my max out date and if I have to continue working on my current job, can I continue to work by converting my status to F1? Is it true that I can obtain CPT if I convert my status to F1 before I max out and continue to work until I get my I140? If true, what are the challenges here?
Kindly share your inputs so that I can plan accordingly. Thanks in advance.
