Thread: Traveling on STEM OPT

    Traveling on STEM OPT

    I graduated in the year May, 2016 and my STEM OPT is expiring on June 30, 2019. I am working with Indian consultancy since two years and I am currently working with consultancy on one of the client location. In between there was a hype that STEM OPT students cannot work at client location. Is it safe to travel to India in the end of this year while working on contract jobs. My H1 is not picked up yet. My student visa stamping is valid till July 15, 2019.

    Thank you !!!

    There should be no problem with traveling especially as you have a valid visa and don’t need to go for stamping.

    With a Pending STEM OPT Extension Application. If your current EAD has expired, don't travel while your STEM OPT extension is pending. You will not be able to return in F-1 status to resume employment.
