    1. Can anyone tell what is the minimum salary requirement when we are on OPT?
    2. Is there a chance for OPT extension Rejection if salary is low?
    3. Will it be a problem for OPT extension if I have a unpaid or volunteer job for a few months and then have a paid job with the same employer? Does it matter?
    4. To apply for H1B, do I need to have all pay stubs?

      1) Opt extension has no salary cap.
      2) Opt ext rejection possibility is not related to wages.
      3) Again wages is not a criteria.
      4) You need pay stubs only for h1b stamping when you go to India and not for visa approval...

      Very best!!

          Yeah, that would be a problem if you are on unpaid and no payroll is generated for more than 90 days. This is only for people who will apply in Nebraska Service Center.
