USCIS Publishes Q&A’s for OPT Cap-Gap Relief Under FY2011 H-1B Cap

The USCIS published questions and answers that address the automatic extension of F-1 student status in the U.S. (known as, “cap gap relief”) for certain students with pending or approved H-1B change of status petitions (from F-1 to H-1B) under the Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 H-1B cap (i.e. petitions requesting a start date of Oct. 1, 2010). If you have questions about whether you or someone you know is eligible for this type of extension, please see the USCIS’ Q&A webpage at this site: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=1d175ffaae4b7210VgnVCM100000082ca60aRCRD&vgnextchannel=b56db6f2cae63110VgnVCM1000004718190aRCRD.
