  • H1 v/s F1(OPT)

    Hi all,
    I was selected in the H1 lottery and got an RFE for my case in June. My OPT was ending in August so i also applied for OPT extension in July to be on safer side. Later in September my H1 got approved and now when i check my OPT extension case status it says RFE. I have not received the letters regarding the RFE. My question is
    1) I am considered now on H1 or OPT extension ?
    2) What do i need to do regarding my OPT extension case ? (Do i need to call USCIS or let them know by any other means regarding my case and request to close the OPT extension case ).

    Valuable responses are highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

        1) You are on H1. Best way to confirm is to call ICE and check if your sevis is completed.
        2) Write to USCIS to withdraw your opt application. Anyway if your sevis is completed you cannot goto OPT/OPT extension.

          2) ask USCIS to cancel or withdraw OPT

            If your H1B got approved means it might have started on Oct 1st if change of status approved. Confirm with your DSO on your Sevis status or check with your employer weather your change of status also approved or not ! If everything fine then withdraw your OPT extn by calling USCIS.
