Please help me with your valuable answers to get out of this dilemma.
I am currently in US with L1 status and 4 years already have been completed and my visa will be expiring in 2017 Feb.
I want to continue in US and for that I’m thinking of pursuing an MS program. So planning to join soon and then to switch to F1 once my L1 expires.
And after spending some time on F1, planning to switch to OPT or H1.
–But if I do this way, will it work?
–I heard that L1 + H1 = 6 years rule is there, but will that be applicable for L1+F1 or L1+OPT as well?
–So the only way to get out of it is to stay out of US for 1 year?
Please help… Thanks.
