  • What happens after I accrue more than 90 days of unemployment during OPT?

    Hi everyone. I'm currently under F-1 OPT status. As you all know, there is a 90 days unemployment limit during OPT duration. My 90 days unemployment limit ends on April 10th and hence I moved to India on March 31st to be on the safer side. Now I have a job offer from a company in the US with the starting date on April 21st. Now I'm not sure if my OPT visa is valid anymore as I have accrued more than 90 days unemployment. Is it safe to travel to the US with my documents (passport, visa, EAD card and Job offer letter)? Or would it be a violation of visa status if I attempt to re-enter the country? I would really appreciate it if someone can clarify this issue as I'm in a dilemma whether to travel to accept my new job. Thanks in advance.

        I'm not sure but with all the proper paperwork you may be allowed to enter. However, since you crossed your 90 days of unemployment be sure you'll not be getting an extension even if you will be working for an e-verified employer.
