My O-1 visa expires next week, so I have to stop working then, but my lawyer says I can stay up to 10 days after my visa expires (My I-94 has the same expiration date as my visa). But I am paranoid that I will be obtaining a "unlawful stay". I will likely come back to America for work or to visit friends, and I wouldn't want that to get in the way. But those 10 days would help me a lot as I have a lot to organize before I leave.
I did find this on the USCIS site:
As an O nonimmigrant, the beneficiary may be admitted to the United States for the validity period of the petition, plus a period of up to 10 days before the validity period begins and 10 days after the validity period ends. The beneficiary may only engage in authorized employment during the validity period of the petition.
So I assume I will be ok?
Would appreciate the feedback of anymore familiar with this.
Thanks so much!
