1-1.5 months remaining on first 12-month OPT and eligible for extension. Can I reenter?

Recommended Posts


My first 12-month OPT expires on August 19th 2013 and I am planning to leave USA and return on July 8th 2013. I have a visa that is valid till 2015 and I am working full-time for an E-verify employer. I am planning to apply for STEM extension after returning as it is said that one should not travel while the STEM extension application is pending approval. My question is with nearly one month left on my OPT, will I be allowed to reenter USA to resume my employment and due to the fact that I am eligible for STEM extension?

Please let me know It would really help me make my travel plans.

Thanks in advance.

You shud not have any problems while entering US. But make sure you have all your employment offer letters, pay stubs, client letter if applicable.

Be sure you are not exceeding the 90 days unemployment. You time outside the US counts towards this.
