  • Travelling on OPT


    I graduated in may 05 2014. My OPT start date in June 24 2014. I joined in a consultancy On 24 June. They gave me a offer letter saying that as an software Engineer Intern and in the offer letter they mentioned as my compensation is $1000 per month and will not be eligible for paid leaves, health insurance and others company befits. With this offer letter can i travel to India on Aug 1 to Aug 20. I am going to attend my cousin marriage. so will it be safe to travel.

    When i come back on Aug 20 in the immigration will they be any problem as it is $1000 pay.

    Can you help me with this?

    Can you tell me what all documents are required to travel?

        1. No Problem, OPT can be unpaid as well.
        2. Passport with Valid Visa, EAD card, I20's signed by DSO, Offer letter from your company, your education certificates, Paychecks(if you have any)

            1) find out prevailing wages , opt can be unpaid however , in latest trend uscis has been denying application on basis of missing pay stubs , you must have stubs , in order to prove your status , however its different story if payment meets prevailing wages of work location that could be ground for denial of work visa
            2) for re-entry you need your i20 signed by your DSO within last 6 mth , your recent pay stubs your offer letter and your EAD card and obviously your passport
