Thread: F1 Renewal while STEM is Pending

  1. #1

    F1 Renewal while STEM is Pending

    I have a F-1 visa stamp has already expired back in June 2018, and my OPT is ending in February 2019.
    Is it possible and safe for me to apply for STEM extension and go back to home country for F-1 visa extension?

    It should be fine as long as I re-enter the US before my OPT expiration date but without the approval of STEM extension and only the I-797 receipt, the consulate might not be convinced, making the visa extension risky.

    For such cases, can I get any recommendations or suggestions as to what actions to take?
