    Thanks & Regards,
    Yes, you can travel. No need to worry. Make sure you have all supporting documents including and not only limited to - all your i20s, the latest i20 must have your DSO stamp added within last 6 months / 1 year, your job letters, recent pay-checks, OPT & STEM OPT cards, your STEM evaluation forms (i983) which are submitted to college, an employment letter from your HR saying that you are a current employee on f-1 visa working on OPT authorization, etc..

    Why is it important to have recent paychecks with you?

    Anything to be able to prove that you are working with the company indicated on the i20 would be required in case asked for. Pay checks have all the company info and pay details etc.. Also, u can include your bank statements. You need to carry all these docs as a precaution only. Most of the times the officer will only see the i20 and passport. But if there is any other document required, then you should be ready for it.
