How Apple handles expiring OPT cases

eBay TC sucks
Nov 30, 2018 18 Comments

Going to get an offer from Apple. My OPT with STEM extension is going to expire next year August. If my H1b is not picked up next year, how does Apple handle that? Do they send to their Canada office or send back to home country? Any cases which you have heard/ seen?

    I’m non-eng and had a major shit show at the border with an Apple sponsored TN visa which was revoked. Apple offered me the job in my home country for 9 months while they applied for my H1B which, thankfully, was successful. Conclusion: Apple sticks behind you to find a solution because they believe in doing what is right for their people.

      Thanks for sharing. Did they adjust your salary based on the home country?

    I think Payments are only US based. Is it IS&T or Services? Avoid these kind of teams.

      Canada is preference since the time zone is same. Do you know teams that have presence in Canada, Europe or Australia regions?

      AMP has office in UK. AMP Commerce is Canada and Singapore.
      Your best bet is AMP

      Does your team sit in Ireland or is that your home country? Do they adjust the tc as per Ireland?

      Half of my team sits in Ireland, I didn’t need to take that route eventually as I got my H1B before extensions expired, so I can’t comment on the tc.

    Which team? Maps team has office in India. Unfortunately Canada does not have many eng teams. China may be option if you are from China
