  • Port of Entry - No Client Letter


    I have been working for big Indian IT consulting firm on OPT from September,2012 till date. I work at client location in Mountain View, California on Employer - Client Model. My employer's USA based immigration office is located in New Jersey. I need to go to India on December, 2013 for 3 week trip. My client is not giving the client letter. Is client letter mandatory document at Port of Entry? My client name is mentioned in the original offer letter when I joined my employer on September 24th,2012. Is my original offer letter sufficient or do I need to get the latest employment verification letter. If yes, do my employer need to mention that my employment with client with start date and will resume my duties with client after my return in verification letter? What should I do if Immigration Official ask for my client letter? My port of entry would be SFO. Please share your thoughts. I highly appreciate your help.

      If already your employer is E_Verified, make sure that all the details of your start date and end date are in the letter. You don't need to mention about the client

            2.N. Can I reenter if I left while on OPT?

            If USCIS has approved your OPT you will be expected to have your EAD in hand to re-enter the United States, in addition to your Form I-20, valid passport and visa, and a letter of employment if you have one. If you exceed the limits on unemployment while outside the United States, you will not be eligible to re-enter the United States in F-1 status.
