Q: I have a friend that came to america on a F1 visa and then applied for an OPT post visa and it was cancelled.
After applying for the OPT post visa, there were issues with graduation and said person couldnt get a job without graduating. What is their visa status? is it reverted to F1 or what are their options.
A: After the F1 and OPT, it does not revert to an F1. From what I can tell from these facts, the person is now out of status and will have a 60 day grace period to leave or fix their status. Contact an immigration attorney so they can get all of the facts and give you the most accurate legal advice. This response does not constitute legal advice. Good luck!
