    H1 - RFE - Expired F1 Visa (STEM OPT ) - 2018


    I am on my student VISA ( F1 ) working on STEM- OPT. My employer sponsored for my H1 and I got an RFE. My RFE is being taken care by my employer.

    My STEM-OPT and my F1 Visa - both expires on Dec 20,2018. Given the time frame, my H1 decision is not certain before my STEM-OPT expiry.

    In this regard,

    Can I continue working until I receive my H1 RFE decision ? If not, How long can I wait ?

    Can you suggest what my possible options are ?

    You cannot work once your STEM expires. You can either enroll in Day 1 CPT or you get 60 days to leave country after the end of the STEM.

    You can stay until you hear back decision on RFE but you cannot work. Once the stem-opt is expired you should stop working.
