I got picked up in this year’s H1B lottery, but ran out of F1 OPT while waiting for the H1B to be approved. I’m currently in India and in the process of transferring to my company’s office in India for the time (~ few months) it might take for my H1B to be approved.
I’ve just submitted my EE application with a CRS score of 481 and have some questions I’d love you folks’ thoughts on:
- Is it ok for me to change my country of residence from India to USA post ITA? Alternately, is it cleaner for me to keep declining ITAs till I’ve moved back to the US on H1B?
- I know that PCCs need to be issued after the last departure from countries of non-residence, and in the last 6 months for the country of residence. How is this affected if my country of residence changes during the express entry process?
- I’ve truncated my job history to the duration I was working in the US, since I haven’t officially transferred to India yet. Can I update this post ITA to include the Indian stint?
