  • STEM OPT Extension & Travel to home country

    Hi guys,

    I was referred here to ask questions regarding my problem on my STEM OPT. At first my OPT expired on December 2013, I applied for extension and it got approved but i haven't received it in hand. (It got lost on the way from the postal office to my place) Tried reaching out to the local post office (they dont know what happened) called up USCIS many times, they requested me to re-apply for the same and i did. The process is still going on with my new documents and i got to travel back to USA by this month end. I have got letters from USCIS saying to re-apply as it was approved but you didn't receive the EAD card. I got the travel I-20 from school, letter from school and work stating my problem to Imigration Officers if they ask for my new EAD. At this time I came to my home country due to family emergency. So my question to all of you is:

    1. Is it safe to travel to U.S.A with the docs i have in hand ?
    2. Should i wait till the new EAD is approved ?

    Any help in this regard is much appreciated.

    Thank you for you help guys,

            I'm guessing you have a valid visa. Then carry the letters and I20. Yoi Should be fine
