My H1B application was denied because my application did not contain client letter. We have applied for I290B (NOTICE OF APPEAL TO THE COMMISSIONER) with more supporting documents. As per USCIS website, they received my application on August 13. I read somewhere that this process may take between 3 to 9 months. My OPT is about to expire on December 6th. I am worried that USCIS may not process my request before my OPT (I did my masters in Computer Science in California) expires, I would appreciate if anybody can explain the options available for me. Thanks
Actually, administrative appeals from denial of a nonimmigrant visa petition take more like 18 months to two years, so there is scant chance of action on your appeal before 12/6. As my colleague noted, you have a grace period of 60 days after your EAD expires in which to arrange your affairs and leave the country. I would strongly recommend that you consult with an attorney about the particulars of your case before you depart.
