F-1 visa holders can apply for optional practical training (OPT) on the completion of their studies. It’s an extension on the student visa allowing eligible international students to work in the USA for 1 year and STEM graduates for 2 years. This extension is a great opportunity for international students to explore the International job markets.
The vast majority of international students in the United States have an F-1 student visa. The F-1 entitles you to apply for Optional Practical Training (OPT) at the end of your studies. The visa allows you to stay in the USA for another year and covert the theories you learned during your period of study into on-the-job training experience.
If you have a degree from the government’s designated list of STEM subjects you will probably be eligible to extend your OPT by another 17 months. Meaning, you can stay in the USA for up to 29 months after graduation. The extension is designed to give you time to gain a permanent job offer and sponsorship from a USA employer, which allows you to apply for the H1-B, a more long-term visa.
