I am currently working on F-1 status with OPT. I have graduated in May 2012. My OPT ends on May 9th, 2013 and then i have a 17 - Month extension. In the meantime, my company will sponsor my H-1 and i will be able to start OPT from October 2013.
So, i am going to work on OPT/F-1 till October 2013 i.e more 17 Months. So, if i have to go to India for a break before October, 2013, then is it safe to travel if i have all the documents ? I have heard from many people that it is not safe to travel but have no proper explanation on why it is not safe.
Can someone guide me on this please ?
