Does Out of status start on date of H1B denial or date of receiving letter?

Hi Anil,

When H1 extension is upgraded to premium, USCIS will provide their decision within 15 days. When does a person go out of status out of the following,
-the day on which mail is received by the employer
-the day on which case status is updated by USCIS

  • the date on rejection letter.

Please guide.


Hi @Hopeful19

The date of ‘out of status’ starts on the day of denial. This same date will be printed on the official letter sent by USCIS to your employer.

The date you see the H1B denial online on USCIS case status website should be considered.
