Do companies like FAANG interview you if your visa is about to expire?

Say that you can only stay 6 months or 1 year on your current visa(OPT, H1 etc). I know that smaller companies don't even bother interviewing you even if you extend your visa stay by taking CPT etc.

But what about bigger companies? Do they interview you and then once your visa ends, place you outside US etc? Or do they just say, frig it, we dont care, we will not interview you even if you have done 500 leetcode questions?

    Microsoft will interview you, and might even give you an offer. Then, they will negotiate and make you go through background checks, and eventually Microsoft immigration will rescind the offer.

    Noone verifies immigration paperwork before you get an offer.
    So I wouldn't disclose anything / pretend my Visa doesnt expire till I get an offer,and take the chance they wouldn't rescind the offer.

      That's a nice idea😊 . But wouldnt it be a waste of time for both the interviewer and the interviewee? And say if one passes the interview in usa, can they then transfer immediately to their home country and join that said company there since there won't be any visa issues in that case? How does team matching work in that case?any idea

      So what are you doing now? Just curious. I am not sure what to do once my f1 opt ends.

    Facebook immigration doesn’t let you proceed if you have less than 2 years on your current work visa.
