  • STEM Extention Travel


    I got my OPT STEM extension, working for desi consulting but with a client from day one. I am travelling to India, my port of entry is Chicago. I have heard some stories about chicago port of entry. Do I need to rethink? Please help.

      Thanks guys for all your feedback. I have changed 4 employer during my intial opt. I am working in the field of my studies.

      Will it still be a problem. I have my valid visa till 2017.

      Should I change the port of entry, if yes whats the best one?

        I would suggest you to switch your port of entry

          One of my friend had to talk with them for an hour at Port of entry. Avoid Chicago if you can.

              Hi I had my port of entry as Chicago and I was very much tensed as well, as I heard many stories about it. But you don't actually know which one of them are true and which ones aren't. I was tensed but it went good by gods grace. I think its not a problem as long as you carry all the necessary docs. And in the end of the day it all depends on your luck anywhere you go in port of entry.
