  • Do you need CPT to file H1B? Yes or No?

    This is avinash I have finished my masters in 2009 from university of Illinois. later took full time with wipro. last year wipro filed my H1b and it got rejected due to improper paperwork on roles and responsibilities. and I have joined a college immediately and now I am planning to file my H1b this year again. do I have to have CPT by the time I file my H1b or can I file my H1b on f1 status?

    As per our understanding you don't need CPT to file H1B, you can directly file H1B from F1 visa. Readers, please share your thoughts
