AS a student on valid OPT F-1 status, H1B was applied this year and approved starting from October 1st. However, change of status was not applied and it got applied under Consular process. Current OPT status is still valid for another 11 months so currently able to work in USA. However is it possible to Change to H1B status (without travelling out of USA for visa) by applying for I-539 within USA? If a I-539 is not possible does it have to be an I-129 H1B amendment?
