  • Successful Visa Renewal

    First post from the reader
    Hi. I have finished my masters this month and also started working from April 2013. My OPT started in April and is valid till May 2014. My student visa is
    going to be expired on Aug 1st, 2013 as I got only 2 yrs visa. My problem is, I have to travel to India definitely during Sept-Oct 2013. As my visa is going
    to expire in august, I cannot come back to US again. Can any one suggest me on how to extend my visa and how to come back to US with out any issues...
    If I enroll for subjects in the school and apply for an extension, can continue my job on OPT simultaneously with the subjects? Plz help me to get out of
    this issue....

    Hi.. I would really like to thank you from bottom of my heart. Your page helped me a lot.
    As per my previous post, my visa was expired in Aug 2013 and I had to attend my brother's wedding in Nov 2013. So, I came to India on Oct 22nd and applied
    for visa renewal. I had my interview on Nov 1st and it was successful. The visa officer asked me just 2 or 3 questions and gave me the visa. They didnt check
    any of my documents other than my I20. After receiving my passport, I was surprised to see that my visa was issued for 5 years. Thanks to DesiOPT

      Congrats! Did you take documents to prove your job status such as job letter, pay stub ?
