  • Travel on OPT, F1 stamping, return before EAD start date

    Hello,
    I came to US on H4 visa, converted to F1 here. I will graduate in March 2015, have applied for OPT in Jan. Start date 25 May . I want to travel to India after I receive EAD card in May, and job offer letter (and all the necessary documents) and come back to US before the start date (25 may). I also have to get F1 visa stamped at US consulate in India.
    1. Is there anyone who traveled to India in this situation and did not face any problems..? I may have to face that situation, hence would like to take a wise decision...
    Please help!!

      It is very common to get F-1 visa denial if you have already entered your OPT period or have graduated. That’s why DSO’s and even ICE recommend that you don’t try to apply for an F-1 visa at this point. You have fewer ties to your home country and the Consulate assumes you are less likely to return after you begin to work here. You may be able to get approval if you have strong ties to your home country or can otherwise show that you intend to return after your OPT is done. If you need to travel, be prepared for the denial and the need to come back on H-4 visa or apply for new H-4 visa to return. If you already have a job offer, you may want to consider having them file for H-1B. This way, even if the F-1 visa is denied, you still have a chance at working in October.
