I have an MBA from a top tire b school in the US. I used up the OPT that comes with it (B-School was not stem eligible). I had a H1B from my prior stay in the US which my employer tried to transfer. It was initiated before OPT expired but I had to go on loss of work leave while I waited the result. Ultimately the transfer was denied (a few days back). I am yet to receive the physical receipt explaining the reason.
What are my options?
- Can I apply for other jobs?
- Can I apply for Day 1 CPT?
- How long can I stay in this country?
Due to the COVID situation, I am not ok moving my family through flights. I am not sure how long before the situation gets better. What are my options if I am willing to wait here even without employment?
