  • H1B to OPD question

    Hello,

    Is there any difference between H1B approval date and effective start date for H1B. If yes, then can I revert back to OPT status if I lose/quit my job if my H1B is approved or under process but has not taken effect.

    Thanks so much,

    Mala

      Mala,

      If you are working under OPT status now and your H-1B petition is still pending, you can have the employer withdraw that H-1B paperwork and remian in OPT/F-1 status.

      If you have an approved H-1B petition that was not filed as a change of status and does not contain an I-94, you are not in H-1B status until you obtaina visa.

      If you have an approved H-1B approval notice filed as a chnage of status, your H-1B status starts with the date listed on the approval notice for your H-1B time. Is it October 1, 2006?

      Regards,

      Andrew
