  • Travelling on OPT Extension


    I have OPT till June 2014. I am full time employee and visa is valid till December 2014. My employer will be applying for H1 in next April.

    I want to visit India this December for 3 weeks. Can some one guide me if that is OK to plan?

    Also, what Documents I need to carry and what question I might be asked?
