For many international students, pursuing higher education in the United States is a dream come true. However, navigating the complex regulations of maintaining F1 student visa status, and transitioning to H-1B status can be complex and daunting for many students. As an F1 visa holder, you are required to maintain your student status to remain in the United States legally. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in serious consequences, including the revocation of your visa and even deportation. There have been spikes in the number of Request for Evidences (RFES) issued during the H-1B applications adjudication process. This is due to lack of evidence submitted by the petitioners to prove their compliance in maintaining the F1 (and OPT/CPT) statuses. Often, this also results in H-1B petition denial, forcing the students to wait multiple years for their H-1B visa.
This book is designed to guide F1 visa students to understand the requirements for maintaining their student status and provide practical guidance on how to stay compliant with these regulations whether you are enrolled in a University, or undergoing OPT (or CPT), or planning to transition to H-1B visa. Whether you are a first-time international student or have been studying in the United States for some time, this book offers valuable insights into the nuances of F1 visa regulations. The author, Dr Raghu Korrapati, draws upon his extensive experience working with international students and navigating the US visa system. With clear, concise language and actionable advice, this book is an essential resource for any international student seeking to maximize their educational experience in the United States while maintaining legal status, complying with regulations, and achieving their career goals.
