  • Can H1B start date be later than Oct 1, 2014 for petition filed on April 1, 2014

    I wanted to know if an employer is filing a H1B petition on April 1, 2014 for a F1 student who has STEM OPT valid till July 2015, if the H1B petition is selected in the lottery, is it possible to have the H1B start date (change in status from F1 to H1B) after October 1, 2014 like in Dec 1, 2014 or Feb 15, 2015 so that the student can use the remaining days of his OPT ? If its possible, when it should be done like during the filing of H1B petition, the employer has to mention a start date, can a later date be provided after Oct 1, 2014 or can the start date be changed after the H1B petition is approved ?

        As far as I know, you cannot select the start date of h1 beyond 180 days or 6 months from your submission date of h1 application.

          There is no possibility of changing the start date of H1B. For all the h1b approved candidates, the start date will be Oct 1

            if you have grater need then you can change by canceling current H1 after approval and re apply once you ready ...
            cost of doing it is h1b fee ( ~3-6k depends on employer size )..

              if you just want to save tax then it is not advisable ..
              if you are going to india and afraid of stamping than you can choose this route ..
