    Cap Gap employment after September 30th

    Hi. I'm currently on Cap Gap and have responded to the RFE for my H1-B petition and awaiting approval. Am I legally allowed to work after September 30th if my H1-B doesn't get approved by then? Please advise.

    No...If your H1b Application is pending after Sept 30. You are not allowed to work on Cap-Gap (It ends on 30th Sept). Only option is to enroll in colleges which offer Day 1 CPT or if employer is allowing you, going to India till your H1b is approved and getting it stamped and coming back to US on it

    If your H1b application is still under processing after sep 30th you are not allowed to work, but can stay back here till you get your decision. You can also ask your employer to start premium processing, which can get you a decision in 15 days.

    No, you must stop working on September 30. If you’re qualified for STEM OPT extension and haven’t already applied, you can apply before Sept. 30 and you can continue working.
