Rastignac Posted July 30, 2014 Report Share Posted July 30, 2014 So I just finished my BS from a US university. My F-1 Visa is valid for another year. I am going to pursue an MS. I have already obtained the new i-20. The problem is, my current visa does not cover the entire duration of my MS program (expires around 6 months before program end date). I wish to be able to travel to india in the interim period and during the following OPT period. So what should I do. I have been told that i will be able to travel back to the US now with my valid visa from old institution and new i20. but should i get a new stamp anyway (with extended validity for program duration + OPT?) what are my chances of getting that given that my visa is still valid? should I do it now or later (maybe december?). Should i apply here in india or canada (i live fairly close) also it appears i wont qualify for the dropbox program (due to changing schools) - am i right? thanks! Link to comment
