    Question Can I work on H1b appeal

    Hi there,
    I'm on OPT Extension. My OPT ends on Jan 2018. My H1 got picked this year and still under process. In worst case, if my H1b get denied. Can I still continue working while appealing for H1b reconsideration.
    Should I depend on H1 and work while appealing/60 day grace period and apply for CPT in Summer term Or should I apply for Day1 CPT now itself to be in safe side.

    After Jan 2018, until your H1 decision is made you cannot work.

    You may want to check if you can legally stay while the appeal is in process after your opt expired.

    You cannot work once your OPT ends. You have to have a valid status for your h1b approval or it will be rejected. The only option you have is to joining CPT college right away and wait for your h1b approval.
