Thread: H1 Visa Question

  1. #1
    Hi:

    I really need some advice on H1B visas.

    I am currently on OPT (F-1 status) which is valid till September 2004. I
    know that H1B
    visa quota of 65000 is almost filled, and new quota starts in October 2004.

    Assuming the company applies for my visa in 3-4 months with an H-1B start
    date of Aug 2004, how will the INS process this:
    - Will the INS return the application, and I will have to reapply in October
    2004? OR
    - Will they hold on to my application, and approve it when the new year
    begins, and automatically give me a start date of around Oct 2004?
    - What is the earliest my company can apply for H-1B for the new fiscal
    year?
    - Will I be in legal status after my OPT expires, until the time my H-1B is
    approved?

    Thanks for all the help.
