  • OPT to H1B in non-everified company

    Hello,

    I have a question on OPT to H1B conversion. I am currently working on F1-OPT and my OPT is expiring on Feb 2014. I have an offer from a non-everified company which is willing to sponsor my H1B. However, the HIB filing begins only in April 2014. I don't think I can apply for OPT extension since the company is non-everified. So, what will happen to my status from Feb 2014 to Apr 2014? Is this a big roadblock to my employment? Is there anyway I can work around this?

    Hoping to get a reply soon. Thanks to Desi OPT for this forum.

      1. You have to get stem extension. No other options. Best thing is ask your employer to get e-verified.

          If they does not want to everify .. then work as contractor ( not 1099) .. have a contract with a everify company and file opt extension .. check with u r company attorney and hr .. they will know what I mean ..

              Its not just for Feb - April. You wont be on H1b status till Oct 1st. So you will need to be on some status between Feb - Sept. STEM extension is your only option. They will need to get everified for you to continue with them in feb

                One more option for you is to shift to a E-Verified Employer
