      It won't be any problem since while returning you will still be on OPT. You should be fine. Don't worry. And PLEASE do share your experience of coming back so other will have an idea.

        I agree with Abraar . You will still be considered on opt/f1. Make sure you take your i20 and other related documents.

            If the H-1B petition that was filed by your employer requested a "change of status", then the change of status request may be abandoned by your departing the U.S. (This means you wouldn't automatically receive H-1B status on October 1 if the petition is approved). If that is the case, you will have to leave the U.S. again once the H-1 is approved, to obtain the H-1 visa in your passport. You may want to check to see how the petition was filed by the company who is sponsoring you.
