I was employed on my initial OPT for a year after which my H-1B petition was approved. However, after visa interview last year, my case was put in Administrative processing which is still pending after a year.
My question is - Does my existing unexpired F-1 visa still remains valid to enter US for a PhD program with new initial I-20?
As per Five month rule, I don’t need to get a new visa if my old visa isn’t expired. But does my pending H-1B case affect my chances to reenter?
Please advise. Thank you.
