F-1 OPT Visas

Students who have completed their associate, bachelor's or master's degree may apply for optional practical training visas that allow them to stay in the U.S. to work in their field for one year. STEM graduates (graduates of science, technology, engineering and mathematics) may be eligible to stay and work for 17 months. This means STEM graduates can extend their stay in the United States for up to 29 months after graduation.

To qualify for an optional practical training visa (OPT), another type of nonimmigrant visa, you must apply no later than 60 days before graduating. Once we have helped you obtain an OPT visa, students are allowed 90 days to obtain a job in the field they graduated from. Once they have found a suitable employer, we can help you work with them to petition for an H1-B visa.
