My OPT is going to expire March 10th and my emoployer is willing to finance my H1B visa, i have about two weeks before OPT expires. What are my options? Can i apply for H1B before or after expiration date?(does it matter?) I know i’m not goting to be able to work after expiration date but can i work after i apply for H1B before it is approved or denied? And i’m not eligable to apply for STEM exptension because i only have assoiate degree from USA and Bachelors from my home country. I received my OPT after completing 2 year associate degree. What are my options here do i have to go back home and come back to USA in october 1st ?(If my employer is still willing to wait for me and don’t fill the position i’m working now)
Thank you for help.
