Question
Dear Ramasamy,
Thankyou for answering my previous question. I am working on my OPT on a contract position and my company wants to make me permanent now.Is there anyway I can work for them beyond my OPT,since the H1 is gone?

Sincerely,

Ruhnaz.

Answer
Ruhnaz: If your are a researcher and the job is in R&D you can try for an O-1 visa. Besides this I do not see any other option. Please note that my advise is limited by this format as well as the information provided.

Best of luck.

Sincerely,
