    If you are remaining in the U.S., there’s no need to get the F-1 visa reissued. Travel and trying to get a visa now may not be a good idea unless you absolutely have to travel.

    Thanks a lot for the reply. What if I am going to India now and again getting my visa stamped F 1..( I am currently employed full time and provide them supporting documents) than I come back here and apply for OPT extension with new passport. I am also planning to apply for H1B .. but my first priority will be OPT extension. Will they extend my opt if I don't have valid visa. That way worries me.. I am not able to find any clear solution for this now.

    Visa stamping is required only to enter USA. You will be fine until u leave US and re-enter. You can get it stamped whenever you go back india.

    Also you can get new passport here itself. Maksure you have police complaint and file for new passport to your nearest Indian embassy

    It would Harley take 10 days if you hurry and submit all required docs and complaint copy

    You can't be more irresponsible. Never mind! Once you get a passport, you c an continue within USA as you need visa only to get into USA. If you travel to India, you can go for stamping, but make no mistake that your visa must be approved. It depends on visa officer. Let's hope for the best!

    No need to go for stamping. You can apply here in USA at Indian embassy and they will return your passport with f1 stamping.
