My H1B petition got picked in the lottery and got my receipt/acceptance notice (I797C).
I want your advise for another very important thing. I am in STEM OPT that will expire at July, 2019 but my F1 VISA that stamped in my passport will expire at December, 2018 (before my EAD expires).
If my H1B got approved before December then there is nothing to worry but if that doesn't get approved (as you must know last years H1B is still approving now) in that case will I have to apply for my F1 VISA extension?? Or as my EAD is valid till 2019 July, that will automatically extend my current F1 VISA.
Thanks in advance and waiting for your expert opinion.
