Overseas trip before receiving the H1B result notice

Hello all,

I’m a newly master’s graduate of this May. I applied for the H1B lottery for this April but have not gotten any notice yet or the receipt number. My OPT starts end of July and I already received the OPT EAD card & the offer letter.

Do you think it is possible to travel overseas at this point?

Thanks all!!!

You may travel outside of US on F1 visa and re-enter on F1 visa. You will need a valid F1 visa to re-enter US. You will have to speak to your DSO and maybe get a new I-20 and carry some paper work from the school. Check UC Berkeley OPT Page for details . I suggest you speak to DSO before you travel and get everything planned.
