I am on OPT cap gap. My H1B petition was selected in the lottery, but an RFE was issued. If the case is still pending beyond September 30th, can I continue to work?


Generally speaking, one on F-1 cap gap may not continue to work beyond September 30th of that year until and unless the H1B change-of-status petition is approved. (17.Jul.2017)
