Hello folks, I am currently on h1b valid till April 2026(I-94 expires on April 2026). My company is planning to terminate me on 12/31/2023 and will follow the bona fide h1b termination process. I live and work remotely from Canada and plan to go couple of days earlier and stay in US to avail grace period. My question is regarding the grace period. How can I avail it? Is it automatically provided or should I submit I-539 online requesting for a grace period due to termination. What are the documents I need to submit and how early should i submit if I would like to avail 60 days grace period. Do I need to be in US at the time of availing and can I do it by myself? I don't know why but there is no straightforward answer anywhere on the internet so would request you to provide some inputs on how to avail one. Thanks
