Immigration Options for International F-1 Students

March 20, 2019

May is the month of graduations, celebrations and life decisions, but for many foreign F-1 students, this is also the time of entering the U.S. immigration law maze.

Graduating F-1 students are allowed to work in the United States, but only under certain conditions and in accordance with complex guidelines and restrictions issued by USCIS.

Our FREE webinar will discuss:

  • Optional Practical Training (OPT) and Curricular Practical Training (CPT)
  • Requirements and timelines for H-1B filings
  • How to obtain the Cap-Gap Relief
  • Alternatives to the H-1B work visa
  • How to talk to a prospective employer about obtaining immigration support
