Hi, I have a quick question that nobody seems able to give a definitive answer to... I would greatly appreciate it if you could help me answer this.
I am currently on an F1 student visa and would like to secure a job in the US. From my understanding, if I find a company willing to sponsor me for an H1B visa, I will eventually be able to get a Green Card... The problem lies in that, due to some complications, my home country (Republic of Korea) will deny any attempt to renew my passport. I will have a valid passport when I get the H1B visa, but my passport will expire in about a year, with no possibility of renewal.
So, assuming that I do not intend to leave the country, is it possible to stay in the US with a valid H1B only? In fact, is it even possible to get an H1B that extends beyond the period of my passport's validity? Also, will this affect any attempts to secure a green card later on?
Sorry for the long-winded question, and thank you in advance.
