International Travel on F1 while H1B approved from Oct 1st


Recommended Posts

I am on F1 - OPT with Valid visa stamped on passport. Recently, got my H1B approved and it starts from Oct 1st. 2021. The change of status from F1 to H1B is not yet taken place. I wan to visit Canada for one week. Can i visit Canada and comeback on F1 status before oct 1st? I will comeback on September 20. Let me know if there are any risks involved? Some folks are saying since H1B is already approved and date is too close to oct1st at the port of entry it will be a challenge to convince nonimmigrant intent. Let me know what is the best course of action?
