  • F1 Stamping In canada While on OPT

    Hi,

    I need suggestion on following.

    I entered US on H4 VISA and changed status to F1 after that. And I completed my Masters in Dec 2013. I got my OPT approved in May 2014. My F1 status I797 shows Valid for as "Duration of Status".

    I want to visit Canada for F1 stamping now. Is there any risk going for F1 VISA stamping while on OPT.

    ​Thanks​

      Hello
      I am in the same situation as you.
      I have my OPT approved since May 2013 and recently had my STEM approval as well.

      I am going to Canada early or mid sept. I recently received my canada tourism visa. I know a handful of people who went and were able to receive visa.

      The key is having all documentation and staying positive. If you need a visa for canada then i would suggest start that process very soon as it takes 2 to 4 weeks.
      When are you planning to go? I would like to stay in touch and keep each other updated.

                          Since you mentioned that you are on OPT, do you have a job?
                          It is safe to take a letter from your employer explaining your requirement for their company.
                          If you are not enrolled with any employer then it would be a risk.

                              It is not the pay stubs, better if you can have a letter which mentions your requirement to be back in USA.

                              This would be useful in worst case scenario
