Filed: H-1B Visa Country: Nepal

Hi, I had H1B visa from company A. I moved to company B and company B did I129 PETITION . Today my status has changed to "I129 PETITION denied". I still have H1B visa stamped till December 2013. What are my options.

Company B asked me to go back to Nepal. In the mean time , they told me that they will file another H1B. what are the chances of it being approved,if they again apply for H1b?

They also told that they can reappeal,how long does it take ? and which option is better one.

or Can I switch to any other status like H4 or F1 right now without leaving country?

Note:I havent received the reason for denial.

I assume your stamp of H1 with December 2013 is with company A? If this is the case, since you are no longer with company A then your stamp is void

Wait for the denial. It may order you to leave the country which I suggest you abide by

Getting accepted into a college and getting the necessary documents ready for a student visa is not a quick process

Good luck
