  • H1 b approved having i-797a number but dso can not generate cap gap i20

    My h1 is approved on may 15th but i dint get my cap gap i20 yet. Im still in grace period from 1 week and waiting for cap gap i20. Called USCIS they say they updated my SEVIS. I checked with SEVIS and DSO they say they are not seeing any status update on my record. Im worried how to fix this issue. I have offer in hand but couldn't give my paper work because of this issue.

    1) what can I do to fix this, please suggest me with possible ways to do.
    Does anybody faced similar issue.

    2) I got admission for universities and have start date from june 2nd where i can get CPT also, but is it better to do SEVIS transfer at this point or wait for cap gap i20.

    3) If i transfer is that legal to stop or terminate education in october once my H1 starts.

          the university, I mean your DSO can generate a request to fix the issue manually by USCIS..... try and see if this works out

            Dont worry nothing happens. Your DSO will raise a ticket with SEVIS they will fix it for you.

                  Dude your DSO can submit a request for change of status with the proof of approved I797 so it will be updated and then your DSO can generate your cap gap i20 .

                        H1 approval by USCIS allows you to get automatic CAP-GAP Extn. until Sept. 30. You are in proper status. DSO has to check their records for issuing the new CAP-GAP I-20.
                        I hope your H1B is filed as a Change of Status (COS) which means USCIS has approved H1B status from Oct. 1. Going back to F1 is not suggested as it require lots of coordination between your DSO and USCIS for 'Data Fix'.
