H1B not picked - F1 soon expire

Hi @Anil_Gupta,

My H1 is not yet picked and my F1 visa is going to expire on July 7, 2019.

  • How long can i stay in US after my F1 visa is expired? I can stay till 180 days after July 7th?
  • Technically i have to wait till USCIS sends official notification with returning of H1B package? Until then i am on Cap-Gap after July 7?

You will get your H1B package back before May end if it has not been selected in lottery.

USCIS completed data entry today and will now send back the non-selected applications.

You will get 60 days to leave once your F1 expires.
