Dear friend,

I want to share my situation and request help!!

My employer(In India) applied I-129 for 2014 and it got approved in july 31 2014 when checked on USCIS website.

But then I had not much preference to come to US. I got an offer in May 2014 from another employer in India, so joined and left my employer who raised H1 for me.

In August 2015 I entered US on F1 visa. As my h1b is not applied with COS it dint changed the status automatically . I am about to complete my masters in December 2016. However I am planning to take internship form this september to december.

Instead of going through all the hectic path from CPT to OPT to H1, I am thinking whether there is any way I can make use of my H1 which was picked and approved by USCIS in 2014.

Please guide me, I dont have any idea.


Thank You

You cannot use H1B visa to work for internship, your status should have changed to either F1 or H1B you cant have both active. Check the H1B status it should have got cancelled by now or your SEVIS ID will get cancelled.

Consult a lawyer.
